Conferring Cycle 1: Conferring Basics
Day 7: Balancing our roles
Challenge: Take the time this week in conferences to ascertain whether the writer you are conferring with needs a kindred spirit or a no-nonsense approach. Be intentional about balancing these approaches as you work alongside students.
Are you more of a kindred spirit or no-nonsense when you work with the writers in your classroom?
What are some ways you can become either gentler or bolder when helping students as writers?
