Why Student- Led Conferences (for middle and high school students)

Student-led conferences empower students to take an active, engaged role in their learning. We want students to understand that

Ÿ   learning is purposeful and contextual. “Students should be helped to see the purpose in what they are asked to learn. Learning should be framed by relevant questions, meaningful challenges, and authentic applications” ― Jay McTighe and Grant Wiggins,

Ÿ   feedback enhances learning and performances, “We do not learn from experience... we learn from reflecting on experience.” ― John Dewey, and

Ÿ   learning is social, “Student- led conferences provide opportunities for interactive learning in a supportive environment”. - Jay McTighe and Grant Wiggins.

Please note:

1.       All teachers will be in their regular classrooms for conferences.

2.       In order to avoid conflicts, appointments should be made through the secretary’s Office. Please email Ms. Ching at secretary@ast.tc.edu.tw  before Wednesday, October 18, 2017.

3.       There are both regular and late buses on conference day.

4.       You may take your child home after the conference.

5.       You do not have to wait until conference days to meet teachers. You may call for an appointment at any time in the year.

Middle and High School

6.       All middle and high school students will participate in the student-led conferences. Students whose parents are not attending will be assigned a time to meet with their homeroom teacher.

學生主導 / 親師懇談會議 訊息

為何初中、高中部要舉行學生主導會議?

學生主導會議讓學生在自己的學習過程中扮演積極主動的角色。我們希望學生們能瞭解:

Ÿ   學習是有目的且相互連貫的。“學生應獲得足夠的協助,清楚理解他們要學習的目的。學習應在相關的問題,有意義的挑戰,與能確實應用的框架上進行” – Jay McTighe 與Grant Wiggins,

Ÿ   反饋檢討可以充實學習與表現。“我們不是從經驗來學習…我們是從反思經驗來學習” – John Dewey, 還有

Ÿ   學習是社會性的。“學生主導會議是在一個充滿支持的環境中,讓學生得以透過互動來學習的絕佳機會” – Jay McTighe 與Grant Wiggins

請注意:

1.           會議都是在老師們自己的教室進行。
