Parent-Teacher-Student Conference Networks in Secondary Programs: A Model.
Wyatt, Mary, C.; Wyatt, Bert L.
The Parent-Teacher-Student Network Model was developed to aid in development of open communication among parent, teachers, and students. A description is given of this model for parent-teacher-student conferencing which was designed to allow participants to discuss educational goals, resolve conflicts, plan strategies for achievement, and evaluate student progress. An outline is presented that lists the purposes of the conference, explains the interrelationships of the participants, and describes three conference phases. These phases include: (1) pre-planning; (2) the conference; and (3) the conference follow-up. While the burden of the work involved falls mainly on the teacher (planning, assembling pertinent information, preparing conference agenda, etc.), suggestions are offered for involving students and parents in meaningful dialogue with each other and with the teacher.
