The middle school student-led conferences are going great!
At the student-led conference, students present their portfolios to their parents. The portfolios contain evidence of learning (papers, tests, quizzes and projects) for all subjects. Students explain to their parents what each piece of evidence shows about their learning, what they have mastered and what they need to work on. Teachers join the students and parents at their tables, but the focus is on the student and his or her presentation.
Students also share highlights of their classes and describe which assignments they enjoyed and found valuable.
