Preparing for Parent-Teacher Conferences
Dealing with parents is scary for experienced teachers so pre-service and new teachers are probably petrified. This session will show several ways to compile, organize, and present data to parents. Being organized will give you confidence and if you have confidence you will have better control of the meeting. Teacher led and student led conferences are better than parent led. Also includes hints for defusing confrontations and using themto help the student.
