Making the Most of Parent Teacher Conferences: Tips for Parents [and] Tips for Teachers.
Bell, Gregory E.
This paper provides suggestions to alleviate the tension, fear, and frustration which may accompany parent-teacher conferences, in order to make them more effective. Tips for parents and tips for teachers are both presented in a checklist format. The tips focus on three typical areas of concern--planning, implementation, and evaluating the conference. Examples of tips for parents include: (1) identify specific questions that need to be answered; (2) keep the child's welfare central to the conference; and (3) summarize and document what was discussed and planned. Examples of tips for the teacher include: (1) determine the purpose of the conference; (2) greet the parent(s) at the door using his or her (teacher's) first name; and (3) keep lines of communication open.
