Beginning Room Arrangement:

Students will know to meet in the computer lab automatically today. As a reminder, there will be
a note on my door.

1. [_10__mins.] Welcome/greeting/announcements/

Here I will explain what the day is going to look like. I will explain the conferencing
process, and how I will get to everyone over the next two days. I will also explain that
while I am not conferencing with you, you have the option to begin some revisions on
your own or begin work on the Relating or Reflection sections.

I will then pass out the pre-conference questionnaire and explain its significance. At this
time I will also explain the post-conference exit slip to save time during the conferences.
I will give students 5 minutes to work on the questionnaire.

2. [_75__mins.] Conferences/Independent Work

We will begin conferencing right away so as to get to as many students as possible

(conferences will be around 5-8 minutes and last for two days. Any remaining students
will have to schedule a conference time either after school, during lunch, or during study

Conferences will begin by going over the pre-conference questionnaire. The main focus
of the questionnaire is, to coincide with the objectives, determine if the memoirs touch on
a reflection of their character, as this is a large part of the unit concepts. With this in
mind, we will read over the memoir and really try to create a conversation about the
writing. I will ask the students various case-dependant questions, and touch on any
questions they have (one of the questionnaire questions will be to develop some specific
questions for me. This is to stress the idea of conversation, rather than only me talking).
We will not be paying attention to sentence-level issues due to time, unless there are
significant issues in this regard.

Each conference will end with developing a plan together for their final memoir. The
ideas we come up with for this plan will be paid particular attention during the grading of
the final memoir (noted in the “Growth” component of the rubric).

While I am conferencing, the other students will have the opportunity to begin revising
on their own, go over their work with a partner, or begin writing the next sections of the
final summative assessment. Because I am conferencing, I will not be able to spend time
with these other students. I am trusting them to accomplish as much as they can and take
advantage of this work time. They know that their assignments are due in the next few
days, and I will reiterate this to help ensure they stay on task. If there are any significant
issues during this independent time, I will step in and address them. Overall, I would like
to be able to focus on the conferences.

Every student who I conference with on this day will be responsible for filling out the
post-conference exit slip (the remaining students will fill this out the next day). I will
collect it from all students who I conference with. The exit slip is just to ensure that the
conclusions we reached during our conversation are understood, and to make sure that the
students have a clear picture as to where their revisions are headed.

3. [__5_mins] Closure:

I will bring the class together and thank those who I did not conference with for being
patient, and thank everyone for working hard today and taking the independent work
seriously. I will collect the exit slips from students I conferenced with.

Materials Needed (list):

Pre-Conference Questionnaires
Post-Conference Exit Slips
Computer lab access (alternatively students can work on their own computers in the classroom.
However, the computer lab creates a better space for independent work and conferencing to
occur together).

Materials Appendix: (e.g., supplementary texts, Ppts, overheads, graphic organizers,

handouts, etc.)
