Product Description
For years I had done regular parent-teacher conferences. It was twenty minutes of sharing papers and talking about areas the student could improve upon, all while the student sat in the hall. Students would change behavior for a day, maybe a week. Then it was back to the same old, same old. Then an amazing teacher from Oregon came to our school, and started talking about student-led conferences. Every grade level had done them at her old school. She conducted them with students in her class, and showed us how it was done. I was hooked! THIS was what I had been looking for.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

BENEFITS:
Students must reflect on their own learning/behavior.

Students make goals and design a plan to meet those goals.

Students, parents and teachers sign a contract outlining how goals will be met.

Students no longer are a passive part of the process, they lead it.

Parents still have time alone with the teacher for a one-on-one conversation.

Parents, teacher and student become a team.

Parents greatly appreciate the extra steps taken on behalf of their child.

Students no longer sit in the hall and worry about what is being said about them.

Helps students accept responsibility for their own learning.

Very helpful for learning disabled students. It helps them zero in on one area to work on as a goal, rather than be overwhelmed by many problem areas.

Best of all, real long-term change occurs in students. Behavior problems and study skills improve.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

DISADVANTAGES
Student-led conferences take more time. Each conference should be one-half hour.

Preparation takes longer, as students are usually not used to doing self-reflection, and must be guided through the process.

Is not recommended for students with severe behavior problems.

This handbook will give you everything you need to conduct your own student-led conference! The table of contents is included in the preview.
