Great to see the number of parents that have come down to see what their children are learning in PE. As the 'Sportfolio' contains all of the students' assessment, reflections, photos, and illustrations from PE, the kids can select whatever they like and explain these pieces to their parents. Having parents involved in their own kid's learning is such a wonderful experience and great to be a part of. I have asked a few parents to comment on what they enjoy most about the day and this is what they had to say:
"Student led conferences are a great way for the kids to explain, in their own words, what they themselves are most proud of as opposed to teacher jargon on a report card"
"It is an excellent way for our children to explain what they have learned in their own words with pride and excitement."
"This is a great opportunity for parents to see a glimpse of their day in school and the progress that they have made in the different subject areas."
"Good to see how the kids reflect on their learning and abilities in PE. A huge undertaking to keep written/photographic records of all the kids you teach!"
"A wonderful opportunity to see what students are learning and how they are reflecting on these experiences. Listening to these explorations is worthwhile"
Student led conferences are an important time of year for our learners to show their parents the hard work they have put in during the year. As the single subjects are a very critical part of any transdisciplinary program, there is excellent opportunity to have the students show what they have done in PE. The ‘Sportfolio’ plays a very big role in my PE program. Filed away inside the ‘Sportfolio’ are numerous pieces of assessment, reflections, and maths integrated tasks. Student led conferences will take place next Wednesday at Nanjing International School. I am using some of class time this week for the students to prepare what they want to show their parents next week. This will be PE’s contribution to this important day.
