Why Student Led Conferences?
Student Led Conferences at REALMS are a critical component "student engaged assessment" at REALMS. We believe the most important assessment that happens in our classrooms is the assessment that each student engages in when she judges her writing, her speaking, her art or any other of her accomplishments by her own standard of quality. Then, it is our job as educators to help each student develop his/her ability to thoughtfully assess his learning and develop the motivation to constantly improve.
During SLC's, it is students who do most of the talking. In the two weeks prior to the conferences students go through a process of selecting pieces of work (evidence) that demonstrate their learning and growth on core learning targets (standards) in each class. They reflect on their learning in each class and on their next steps, and prepare to share all this with you in a structured 45 minute academic conversation. We typically have 100% (or VERY close) family participation!
We can't wait to help you
and your student dive into some rich, productive, and "evidence-based"
conversations about his/her growth and progress so far this year!
