Creating Powerful Portfolios and Student Led Conferences
This book demonstrates how portfolios and student led conferences support the authentic assessment of the ‘whole child’. A step by step approach is used to understand the context, develop the content and celebrate the results of the use of portfolios and their integral role within powerful student led conferences. The underlying principle of this process is the use of metacognition in the classroom, which enables students to take genuine responsibility for their learning.
A step by step process is utilised throughout this book, enabling every classroom teacher to embark on the portfolio to student led conference journey based on their own individual needs and those of their students and school community.
