    Re: Student Led Conferences

    It is required that our 6th graders complete student led conferences. Each teacher does it differently. It helps me out since I have a large ELL population in my class and having an interpretter at all of them doesn't usually work all the time. I usually have a checklist for the students. We practice it the week before the conferences. It went from them introducing me to their parents, showing them their seats, going over the report card and explaining why they got the grade that they got. Since we are departmentalized it helps that the students are there to explain the grade since I might not know specifics about their performance in that class. Then, I have them go over their portfolios if time permits. If I see the student not going in the right direction, I redirect or jump in. Some teachers grade this, but I didn't. The students were already super nervous.
