Use this reading conference guide as you are building your confidence during conferencing.
As a new teacher or a teacher first diving into a workshop approach, conducting meaningful reading conferences can take practice. To help teachers get started with this practice, we have created a conference guide. This is a basic reading conference guide, truly designed for beginners. It will help you as you build your confidence.
Not every conference should be about basic questions such as who, what, when, where and why. We have included other areas of focus.
This conference guide can pair well with our conference forms found within our Reading Management Binder.
This reading conference guide is designed to be made into an easy to carry flip chart. Print in color, laminate and cut the pages in half. You can then put them together with a binder ring. This size will make it easy to carry with you. Plus, we’ve grouped the ideas into categories. This is great for beginning teachers and student teachers!
If you would prefer, you can also print and hole punch to add to your reading management binder. Be sure to leave a copy when you have a sub to help your sub with conferencing!
