Connecting School and Home: Put It Into Practice

Put It Into Practice

Plan a Parent-Teacher Conference

In this activity, you will develop a parent-teacher conference guide for one of your students.

Parent-teacher conferences allow parents and teachers to exchange information about student achievement, interests, and progress. Careful planning will ensure that both teachers and parents are informed about how to support children's literacy learning.

In planning for your parent-teacher conference:

  1. Choose a student who is having difficulty with reading and writing.
  2. Print the Conference Planner (PDF). Complete the sections to help you focus on important information, questions, and documentation of reading and writing to share in the conference.
  3. Gather any support material you want to share with the parent to illustrate their child's performance. These may include writing samples and assessment results. Consider how you will explain any assessment results parents may have difficulty understanding.

Submit a completed Conference Planner.
