Who doesn't like making things easier? We have so much to worry about as teachers and parent conferences tend to add to the stress. Students Led Conferences is an amazing way to: Make students more accountable for their hard work (or lack thereof)
Give students a chance to reflect on their work, effort and areas of improvement
Give students a safe avenue to show their parents their strengths and areas of needed improvement
Discuss being professional, showing respect, acting responsible and showing manners at a young age
Impress parents with their child’s ability to prepare and organize their work as well as conduct their own conference without teacher aid
Get most of you conferences done in one night
Take (most) the stress of parent conferences off your (the teacher’s) shoulders!
Included in this packet is:
Editable Parent Invitation

Work Sample Folder Cover
Student Forms for Conference (one for every subject)
Setting Goals Form
Parent Sign In Sheet
Parent Post Conference Sheet
Teacher Tips for Conferences
I have seen success with every age group (K-12) and sub-group . Student Led Conferences take time to plan. Students have to have time to collect samples and prepare. However, wouldn't it feel nice watch your amazing students show off their work while you sit back and relax while your students do all the work!
