Reflection: Conferencing Biography Research: Research, Reading, and Notes (Day 5 of 11) - Section 4: Students Read Closely, Research, and Record Notes


Each day this week during our working time, I've been checking in on individual student progress.  This has helped me plan my whole class instruction if I see most of the students missing something.  It also identifies struggling students I need to check in with, or "visit" first when we begin working.  I use this information when I meet with our student services team as "anecdotal notes" of how students are performing day to day in the classroom.  Students value their time with the teacher, so even if a student is performing well, I still stop in and conference with them for a short time to let them know they're doing a great job!
