One area that I know I had been lacking in but honestly was just trying to keep my head above water in was "conferring" with students in Writing Workshop. The first few years I started Writing Workshop I was having my little meetings with students and writing down feedback on post-it notes. Then as the years passed and I schedules got changed, I ended up just trying to squeeze in some good Writing Workshop time and let the conferring side go a bit. It became more verbal feedback but I'd lose track of who I talked to about what and when! So this year I'm trying to be proactive. I've created this "Conferring Recording Sheet" to put in a Conferring Folder. This way I'll be able to keep track of who I've already met with and what we talked about! There is a spot for the student's name, the star = a compliment about the writing, and TP = the Teaching Point you'd like the student to work on.
