Have you racked your brain trying to find the time to conference with your students about their writing assignments? If so, never fear... 5-Minute Super Quick Writing Conferences© are here!!!
Having taught writing for years, I always struggled to find the time to conference with my students concerning their writing. I found that it was virtually impossible to meet with each student and to find the individual time that I needed to spend with each of my 20+ students per classroom. I asked several colleagues if they had the same problem, and I learned that we all were spending thirty or more minutes meeting with each of our students and reviewing their writing. Armed with this knowledge, I began my quest to come up with a creative, engaging, time-efficient and teacher-friendly way to conference with my students.
