Three Way Conferences: Students as leaders of their own learning

The three way conference is part of the personal learning domain. It gives you the opportunity to articulate and reflect on your learning and show what you have learnt since the beginning of this year. You are in charge of your own learning and this is the forum for you to show your parents what you can do.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Things to consider:

  • You will focus on the two areas of literacy and numeracy and one area of your choice (if time permits).
  • You may like to choose a work sample from the beginning of the year and one from recently to show your growth.
  • You might prefer to choose one sample and highlight new knowledge and skill.
  • Highlight your strengths: be specific and explicit about what you know and the learning you demonstrate.
  • Discuss areas for future development: what is next for you in terms of your future goals. This may include your personal learning goals from your report.

Structure:

The duration of the interview is 10 minutes. You will discuss your learning for about 5 minutes and then there will be opportunity for your parents and teacher to ask you questions and give you feedback.

Throughout the conference parents and the teacher may; ask questions, provide feedback and give encouragement, and to share thoughts and ideas on what is being presented.

You will have the opportunity to practise your conference in class time. Use sticky notes and note taking to help be prepared for your presentation.

As we finish off our term two science unit on The States of Matter and Chemical Change it is time to write a reflection.

As we finish off our term two science unit on The States of Matter and Chemical Change it is time to write a reflection. I’ve a clear structure I’d like you to follow when doing this.

Term 3 Project Reflection:

A good detailed introduction paragraph.

 Then:

Three facts I found interesting and surprising:

Two Understandings I now have:

One Wondering I still have is:

Finally:

What were the most important things I learnt?

How did I learn it?

What am I going to do with what I have learnt?

An example can be found on Grace’s term 3 reflection from last year.
