What should I bring to SLCs?

Student Led Conferences:  What is it?

respect wordle

An opportunity for you:

  • to be the center of attention
  • to share your successes and struggles from the first quarter
  • to reflect and set goals for the second quarter
  • to be encouraged and supported by your parents/mentors and teachers

 What should I expect?

  • Students lead discussions about 1st quarter progress(students do most of the talking)
  • Conferences should last 20-30 minutes
  • Teachers and parents listen and ask questions
  • Conferences should be part reflective (What has gone well? What could use work?)
  • Conferences should be part prescriptive (What do I need to do to get to where I want to be?)

 What should I bring?

  • A positive attitude
  • A willingness to be open about how things are going in school
  • Honest reflection and ideas about goals for next quarter
  • Artifacts or reflection documents from each class which represent things that went well and things that could use some work
