Parent–Teacher Conferences: A Tip Sheet for Parents
As a parent, you are your child’s first and most important teacher. We both have something in common: We both want your child to learn and do well. When parents and teachers talk to each other, each person can share important information about your child’s talents and needs. Each person can also learn something new about how to help your child. Parent–teacher conferences are a great way to start talking to your child’s teachers. This tip sheet suggests ways that you can make the most of parent-teacher conferences so that everyone wins, especially your child.
What should you expect?
A two-way conversation. Like all good conversations, parent-teacher conferences are best when both people speak and listen.
Emphasis on learning. A good parent-teacher conference focuses on how well your child is doing in school. The conversation is about how the child can do even better.
Opportunities and challenges. You will probably hear positive feedback about you child's progress and areas for improvement. Be prepared by thinking about your child's strengths and challenges beforehand. Be ready to ask questions about ways you and the teacher can help your child with some of his or her challenges.
Progress. Find out how you child is doing by asking questions like: Is my child performing at grade level? How is he or she doing compared to the rest of the class? What do you see his her strengths? How could he or she improve?
Assignments and assessments. Ask to see examples of your child's work. Ask how the teacher gives grades.
Support learning at home. Ask what you can do at home to help your child learn.
Support learning at school. Find out what services are available at the school to help your child. Ask how the teacher will both challenge your child and support your child when he or she needs it.
Involve your child. The parent-teacher conference is all about the child, so don't forget to include him or her. Share with your child what you learned. Show him or her how you will help with learning at home. Ask for his or her suggestions.
