Teacher Providing an Overview of One-on-One Conferencing at Roots

Roots teacher, Megan Miles, talks about the value of one-on-one student conferencing


Transcript: Megan Miles: One thing that we do that I really love is that we have one-on-ones. So that's what one of the coaches was doing this morning. I don't know if you saw her. But every other day, we get to – we have an hour that we pull kids, and we actually have a meeting with them with like, how are you doing? Like, what – let's go through each of your classes and talk about them. Let's set goals for you. And so, that way, we absolutely meet every single kid, and then we're also really in charge of just, I set all of the kids' grove schedules, for example. So I'm talking to the teachers about what their academic priorities for each one of my kids – and then organizing their schedule based on that.
