I will NEVER go back to "Teacher Led" Conferences, after I have implemented this! It is incredible to see/hear your students lead the conference about their year. This resource will guide your students every step of the way. Students are empowered, parents love to hear from their child, and having students take ownership in their conferences brings cohesiveness between students, parents, and you!
This is an editable digital resource to help students become leaders of their parent-teacher conferences. You can use the link below to open a VIEW ONLY version of the Google Slides Presentation. YOU WILL THEN NEED TO MAKE A COPY IN ORDER TO EDIT ANY TEXT OR SLIDES. Once you make a copy, it will then be an editable version on your drive, to allow you to create the setup that works for your class.
Then you can assign it as an assignment through Google Classroom - making sure to select the “Create a Copy for Each Student” option. - I like to have everything centrally located in Google Classroom, but you may have your own method.
Each slide is created with the images embedded as the background, so there are no accidental deletions of images. The text boxes are created and ready for your students to type directly into the boxes. I have included blank slides that let you enter areas that you would like your students to express what they feel really good about/what they could use help with - if the existing content areas don’t fit your needs. Feel free to delete any slides that you do not wish to use.
This resource includes:
• an explanation of how to use the resource AND checklists to help you and your students get organized for the conference day
• an editable Google Slides presentation to fit the needs of you and your students
• a perfect way for your students to take the lead in their conferences
