The purpose of Step 4 is to work with the narrowed list of project goals and potential strategies for change that were identified at the end of Step 3 to now decide what to change and exactly how to change it.

Use the following tools to:

  • Guide students in democratic decision-making
  • Select one policy or practice to change
  • Develop a project goal and a strategy statement to guide how the change will be made.
