Starting the Parent-Teacher Conference Dialogue

Found In: parent-teacher communication; parents

I always begin parent-teacher conferences by asking the parent, “What does [child’s name] say at home about my class?” The response gets the dialogue started. I explain what we are studying and talk about how the child is doing. I point out resources available to students such as tutoring, after school study center, etc. I also ask for email addresses so that I can contact parents more efficiently. I ask parents of high school seniors what their child wants to do after graduation. This helps me advise them on what classes they should take next term.
