Student Led Conferences

Filed under: Students — Mr. White @ 2:04 am

We just completed a K to 12 evening of Student Led Conferences on Jan. 12.  The purpose of the conference is:

Student-led conferences are designed to:

  1. give the student the opportunity to showcase skills
  2. give students the opportunity reflect upon work with a view to seeking self improvement
  3. promoting parent involvement
  4. foster a student – teacher dialogue focussed on learning

How did you feel that you met the above goals?  How did you do?  What changes would you like to see?
