Conferring Cycle 2: Peer Conferring
Day 10: Sharing the fruits of their labor: Debriefing about peer conferences
Challenge: It’s easy to highlight a well-functioning partnership in a full-class share. However, consider boosting a run-of-the-mill partnership. If necessary, spend some extra time working with them, noticing their strengths. Then encourage them to share something interesting they did together with the full class.
What made it challenging to highlight a partnership that you didn’t regard as stellar?
What did you learn about the highlighted partnership when they shared?
What do you think your other students learned about peer conferring by watching this partnership present the work from their conference with the rest of the class?
