EdLight’s Tips for Centering Students Voice in Family Conferences

Know your why

Student-led conferences empower students to take ownership of their learning and engage in critical reflective practices. How do student-led conferences fit into your vision for your classroom this year?

Provide structure for reflection and revisions!

Give students a structured way to reflect and revise their work throughout the marking period. If you need a place to start, download our Student Work Reflection Template.

Give students enough time to prepare and rehearse

Give students enough time to prepare and rehearse. Student-led conferences build social-emotional skills like confidence in public speaking and organization!

Use student curated portfolios!

Use student work you’ve saved in EdLight throughout the marking period to build portfolios to share with families.
