I am happy to help you look for articles. First, a few questions. When you mention "daily work", "daily expectations" and "daily challenges", are you referring specifically to their work as student council members? Or are you just working with these issues with a group of students who happen to be student council members? My guess is that you're referring specifically to the work the students do in their roles as council members. If this is correct, articles about student councils are generally tagged with at least one or both of the following subject terms: "student government" and/or "student leadership". I suggest using these two subject terms in combination with another keyword and doing a few different searches. 

To search by a subject term, you need to change the drop down arrow choice to Subject. The image below shows what it will look like. For best results, you will want to include both of those subject terms separated by the word OR. And search multiple education databases.
