This two-page overview of student-led conferences was created by Share Your Learning, an organization dedicated to helping teachers create opportunities for students to present their learning to the public. One such opportunity, student-led conferences, encourage student ownership and engagement, increase family involvement and promote equity. The overview includes detailed steps on how to prepare students, run the conference, and debrief after the event.
Any teacher looking to begin this practice will gain tips from this overview, as well as the links to other resources and examples to help teachers get started with student-led conferences. This article “Four Ways to Redefine Parent Teacher Conferences—With a Little Help from Ironman” is a good accompaniment as it shares four tips to elevate your student-led conference and make it more successful, meaningful and student-centered.
