Empowering Youth: Student-Led Conferences

๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ˜Š

Long day, but worth it.

When kids get a chance to take the lead as they reflect on and share their progress, they begin to take ownership of their own goals and achievements. It’s so amazing listening to them articulate to their parents what they’re good at, and what they can continue working on. I’m just there to support the conversation.

Had a bunch of monkeys tell their parents today that they need to learn better self regulation strategies, and even told their parents to take away their videogames if they misbehave ๐Ÿ™ˆ Straight from their mouths! Student-led Conferences are so effective ๐Ÿ˜‚

Inevitably, you will have kids who feel awkward taking the lead, as they are unfortunately used to being silenced for one reason or another. Hopefully, this process will help break the cycle and can demonstrate what can happen when we give kids a voice.

More of this tomorrow morningโœŒ๐Ÿผ
