Pictures of Learning
October 16, 2008
I have been teaching for twenty years and have always taken photos of my students to use during conferences. Parents love to see what their child looks like during learning time so I take about five or six photos that I can show and discuss with them during the conference. Before the conference, I write down three things the student is doing well and what needs to be improved to meet the standards. I already have suggested activities prepared and in writing. Although organizing these materials is time consuming, the photos and preparation has always helped me have great conferences.
