Conferring Cycle 2: Peer Conferring
Day 6: Peer conference notes
Challenge: Design a student-friendly peer conference note system, which will also help you. Further, determine where the peer conference notes will live (e.g. on a new sheet of paper each time, in a notebook, in a binder) and how often you will monitor them. Finally, be sure to get your students’ input on the system before you implement it.
What was your students’ response to the note-taking system you developed?
What will you do to teach your students how to take thoughtful notes at the end of their peer conferences?
How do you envision this system evolving from year to year?
