Parent teacher interviews are just around the corner! On
Wednesday, October 19th, you will have the opportunity to introduce
your parents and teachers to each other. As a student, you can take part in the
interview and use this time to create an action plan. This plan will consist of
the steps needed to get to your next level of learning. Remember to get your
parents involved as well, so that all parties are on the same page. The teacher
will bring the issues that need to be discussed to the table, but it is your
job to be actively engaged in the discussion. Here are some questions to get
you started on your path to success:
What are my strengths?
Knowing your strengths can help you while studying so that you can optimize
What are my weaknesses?
are the areas that you should focus on while studying.
How can I improve upon my weaknesses?
If you are unsure of how to improve, having guidance can help you if you don’t
know where to begin.
Is there any help available after school?
® Teachers may stay after school to help you
or point you in the direction of a source that can help. For example, Monday to Thursday there is peer tutoring available in the library after school!
Can I get extra practice questions?
® If you can’t coordinate your schedule around
your teacher’s, he or she can give you practice questions so that you can learn by
yourself. Make sure to ask in class if you have any questions!
