Website Wednesday: Mr. B’s Great Ideas for Parent/Teacher Conferences

by Kristie Burk, DASD Coordinator of Blended and Online Learning

Last weekend I participated in #satchatwc (Saturday educational chat – West Coast) on Twitter.  One of the topics was on improving parent/student engagement.

Justin Birckbichler @Mr_B_Teacher is a 4th-grade teacher in  Fredericksburg, VA.  I really like his blog called “Mr. B’s Blog.” In our Twitter chat, he shared his ideas for improving parent/teacher conferences. You may be able to get a few good ideas for your conferences next week!

His blog includes a template for students to self-evaluate their strengths and weakness and to set a goal.  The students had to complete a script, practice their conference and dress professionally for the event. The blog even includes video of two students’ conferences.
