Please note that I did not use this document as a word document in my classroom. I uploaded it as a google template and allowed students time during writing workshop to use computers and type their answers to each question. This freed me to look at the document each child created prior to conferences, assist them in editing any surface errors by utilizing the comments section of google docs. It also prevented the situation in which the child shows up to conferences and the preparation has literally been lost. I could either pull up the form on the computer or print it off myself.
