I agree that I should have each student's information ready ahead of time and also have representative work for each one so the parents can see their work and/or assessments. I love having even more time than this teacher suggested for the PARENT to talk and ask questions. I feel the conference is for them so I want to make sure their voice as well as their student's voice is heard. I am of course prepared to lead and discuss, especially with newer parents or those who are just there to show they are supportive of their student. However, I find the parents who come are the ones who have a concern about a grade or their student's behavior and I want us to come up with a game plan together about how best to help their student.
