    Britt,

    Thank you so much. Your email arrived with student-led conference ideas just in the nick of time. I just (moments) ago finished my last sessions with parents as the student led the whole thing. You're right about the low stress part. I was just amazed by the things my students shared, describing things we do in great detail. At one point when a student was discussing how we write paragraphs with topic sentences and supporting details, I just sat there in amazement thinking, "Dude! I am a wonderful teacher! Just kidding of course. Parents were visibly proud of their child, and students walked out "puffed up." I don't think I'll ever do the other style of conferencing again.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Elaine
