You can tell it’s been a busy time of year based on how quiet I’ve been on my blog. I just finished writing Progress Report Cards and now with my class we are preparing for Student-Led Conferences (SLC). SLC’s are exactly as the name suggests. They are student selected, driven and led. The teacher in the room acts as a facilitator but the kids really take ownership. We are doing this in place of the traditional interview format where the teacher and parents discuss the student (without or without he/she there) for 15 minutes. The room will be busy! At any time we could have 3-5 families i at once looking at their child’s portfolio, trying out activities that are selected by the students. It’s very exciting!
The students in my class have been working on their portfolio for a week and a half. Thursday they get to share it with their families and I’m really looking forward to how it goes!
