    Student led conferences

    The student evaluation form I created has categories for each area I would like discussed at the meeting. (math, language arts, science, s.studies, peer relationships, following directions, etc....whatever you want discussed) Each category has a number grade system from 1-5 and a space for student comments regarding their strengths and weaknesses in that area. The form is very simple for the kids to follow. For example: In the category of math a student may grade themselves a 2, meaning they do not think they're doing that great. Then they explain their grade in the space that follows, commenting on what they think they do well and where they are having problems. Usually the kids do not write much but will explain in much more detail when they are sitting with their parents. This allows the parents to hear what their children are having trouble with and gives me a little more insight as well.

    I always discuss this process with the kids and demonstrate how to fill out the form. Some parents do not want their children present at the meeting, these conferences go about as normal. But, those including the students seem so much more beneficial for all involved.
