Conference Updates

The parent-teacher conference actually went really well. The teacher is looking at more positive ways to conduce appropriate behavior, more hands on and more physical activity as an outlet for several of the boys in her room.

She even referenced the Newsweek article, The Trouble With Boys, when discussing her intentions. She said some small curriculum changes were being made to help address the issues many teachers were having with boys in their classrooms and that the teachers were invited to further change classroom structure, environnement, rewards, etc in line with this thinking.

She was very interested in activities that he enjoyed so she could try to incorporate them as positives into her room. All in all, I think everyone left the conference feeling pleased with how it had gone and what would be implemented moving forward.
