What Is a Student-Led Conference?
10th April 2018
Next Thursday, April 19 is PYP Student- Led Conference day at GIS!
For anyone new to this, please note that the format is different from a parent- teacher conference. Essentially, it is a scheduled opportunity for you as parents to sit with your child and share a collection of work samples they have gathered in their individual portfolio. This is their moment to share select pieces and experiences that illustrate their personal strengths, areas for improvement and/or things that make them especially proud.
As a result of the conference, it is our hope that families will celebrate learning milestones and also take time to create goals and strategies for supporting student growth and improvement.
Each child will lead their own 45 minute session, and teachers will be nearby to facilitate if needed. Parent discussion questions will also be available as suggestions, to help stimulate rich dialogue. Currently, all Grade 1-5 students are preparing and practicing for conferences.

We look forward to seeing you next week!
