Student-Led Conferencing Using Showcase Portfolios.
Benson, Barbara; Barnett, Susan
This book explains to teachers and administrators the processes for creating student showcase portfolios to be used in student-led conferences. The portfolio is an assessment document of student performance, while the student-led conference truly demonstrates student learning. Creating portfolios without the purpose of sharing them with an authentic audience is too much work with too little reward for students and teachers. These strategies are discussed in the following chapters: (1) "Informing Everyone"; (2) "Building Student Portfolios"; (3) "Planing and Preparing Student-Led Conferences"; (4) "Conducting Conferencing"; (5) "Reflecting and Celebrating"; and (6) "Improving Student Learning: The Evidence." One resource section contains sample forms, and the other discusses additional types of portfolios. (Contains 32 references.) (SLD)
