_DSC0080Rainbow Community School has been doing student-led conferences since the early 80’s.  When students lead their own conference, they truly have to reflect on what they have learned, how they learned it, and what their future goals are.  Plus, it gives parents the opportunity to gain greater insight into how their child thinks, what is meaningful to their child, and what their school experience is like through their child’s eyes.  Our student-led conferences will be the last one of the year, and a great way to wrap up the year. Other progressive schools have followed our lead and started doing student-led conferences, in particular International Baccalaureate (IB) schools.  Check out this great video from The Wildwood School: http://www.edutopia.org/practice/student-led-conferences-empowerment-and-ownership
