Student-Led Conferences to Launch
Personal Learning Portfolios Showcase Progress
Beginning in September, students will experience a new block in their schedule: the Personal Learning Portfolio (PLP) block. The PLP is a compilation of work that students develop throughout the year that reflects their finest work in targeted academic skills and standards. Students gather pieces of work that demonstrate their strongest efforts, and as the portfolio is being developed, student peers and the Portfolio Coach provide ongoing feedback and recommendations. Mixed-grade level PLP groups allow students to develop supportive relationships, and to sharpen their collaboration, communication, and social skills, while also providing them with an audience that offers descriptive, non-judgmental feedback about their portfolio.
Towards the end of each semester, students lead a conference at which they present the contents of their portfolio, provide insight into each piece’s development and revision, and reflect upon the learning that occurred throughout the process. The Student-Led Conference (SLC) and underlying portfolio development process is designed to help students take ownership of their own growth and learning. Students develop and hone those skills necessary for them to reflect upon their learning and determine the relevance of class assignments. This process will lead to increased student choice, greater student involvement in the assessment process, heightened motivation, and more personalized learning experiences that are rooted in student interest.
In order to accommodate our PLP groups, we have revised the schedule to include a 35-minute meeting each Wednesday. The 10-minute Advisory period has been eliminated in order to reallocate the time for this work. Please click on the “Schedules” link to see the new times.
For more information about the program, please take a look at the PLP Student Handbook (2016-17), linked here.
