Conferring with Readers

I was recently working with a couple of Grade 5 teachers on support materials for teachers to use during reading conferences. This arose following our visit from Kathy Collins and our discussions on how to make our conferences effective when we were not familiar with the book the student is reading. We discussed the kind of generic questions and ideas we could explore with the student and decided to put together a help sheet which teachers could use as a support for their conference.

There are 3 possible routes for determining the teaching which takes place in a conference, as follows:




We then discussed the kinds of generic questions which a teacher might use to explore the child's understanding of the book and organised these questions into strands within Fiction and Non-Fiction.
