Launching Student Led Conferences

Student Led Conferences

Student Led Conferences is about giving students greater ownership of their learning.

Launching Student Led Conferences
One of our major initiatives, Student Led Conferences, is about to debut. In order to prepare, conference mentors will meet with their mentees this week instead of Advisory.

The purpose of the second meeting is two-fold…

1) Cultivate deeper relationships with your mentees (get to know them well)

2) Coach them in revising their 2 goals (1 academic, 1 personal).

Try SMART goals OR challenge them to pose their goals as questions (How might I {action} in order to {significant impact}?

To truly make this debut a success, mentors and students will meet a total of 4 times before SLCs on September 23. Each meeting has a distinctive purpose.

Sept 1: Cultivate relationships, revise goals (* note: goals were set the first week of school)

Sept 15: Feedback on Digication ePortfolio

Sept 17: Students pull Power School grade reports, get feedback, communicate any flags to teachers/parents

Sept 22: Rehearsal with partners (students are sharing their goals in Fall conference)

Student Led Conferences is one of four major initiatives intended to expand the learning measures beyond (but still including) numerical grades for this year. Much gratitude to Mrs. Tripp and Ms. Goins for the research and time they spent advancing the work for our team!
