Mattering refers to the “feeling that one counts and makes a difference in another person’s life (…)” (Demir, Ozen, Dogan, Bilyk & Tyrell, 2010, p. 985). A student’s sense of mattering is tied to how they feel about themselves; their self-confidence, self-esteem, and whether they believe they have an impact on others and their world around them. These practices can help students to feel valued and special.
