This sheet alone, has saved me so much time and frustration in talking with parents about students grades. Before having students complete this sheet, I often got the angry phone calls and emails from parents wanting to know why their child had a low grade in class, the student of course always having a very different story than the teacher.
Once I started having students complete this sheet, the phone calls and emails almost disappeared.
On the rare occasion that I do hear from a disgruntled parent, sharing their child’s responses to the questions below, usually quickly puts an end to the conversation.
