Daily 5 - Conferring Notebook Follow Through
From the Daily 5 website:
We keep three things in mind that help us stick with conferring and taking notes all year long
2) Because we aren't the sole keeper of what is learned, students become partners in their learning. Students are brought into the loop after teaching and assessment takes place. Because goals are clearly defined, shared and agreed upon often, all mystery is eliminated, students buy into and take responsibility for their own achievement. This is why you will often hear us ask students, "Tell us about yourself as a reader." Or "What goal and strategy are you working on?" "What do you think you will work on next?" "Here's how I want to help you today to reach your goal of _____".
3) Keep it simple-nothing elaborate. Many times we only write down a few important words that will spark our thinking for the next time. This is one reason why we came up with a protocol for writing notes, to give us permission to keep it simple. We find it more meaningful and productive to take a few notes on lots of students rather than to take long notes on one or two.
