Dear Parents,

亲爱的家

 

As a parent myself, I think it is really great that parents have many ways to keep up with both what their children are learning at school, and the progress they are making throughout the year. How do I know that my daughter is learning at school? I take part in parent-teacher conferences, student-led conferences, and I talk with her at home regularly about her school life, as I have done for all four of my children over the past 20 years. Today, Wednesday, March 18, I will take part in student-led conferences for the last time, just a few hours before you get this letter. The last of my four children is graduating from high school. I have experienced parent-teacher conferences, digital systems like ManageBac, Blackboard, grade reports, written comments, portfolios of my children’s work, etc. and I always find myself asking the same questions - Are my children being challenged? Are they keeping up with developmental milestones? Will they be able to compete with others? Are they becoming more confident, empowered and inspired learners?

一位家,我得能有机会了解孩子在学校里学什么,了解孩子在整个学年中的步,是非常棒的事。我是如何知道我的女儿在学校的学呢?我参加了教会和学生家,并且在家经常和她谈论学校的生活,像在过去20年我和我的四个孩子做的一样。今天是318日星期三,就在您们收到这封信前的几个小时,我最后一次参加了学生家长会。我最小的孩子将要高中毕业了。我参加了教师家长会,并且阅读了像ManageBacBlackboard这样电子系统、年级报告、书面意见和她的作业夹,我总是发现自己在问同样的问题:我的孩子受到挑战了吗?他们能跟上发展的脚步吗?他们能与别人竞争吗?他们是否成为了更加自信、有能力并且受到启发的学习者?

 

 

After reading grade lists, test scores, and teachers’ comments, I must say that the student-led conferences have always given me the greatest insight into what I wanted to know. I learned to listen to my children as they talked me through their work. They would tell me what they experienced, explain how they were learning, discuss their triumphs, their struggles, their strengths, and their areas to improve. These were special moments when I could gain insight into my children’s minds in the classroom. I have found that when a teacher was adept at supporting my children in expressing themselves, they were able to answer all of my questions mentioned above. This was no easy task for them! In the past, I have made many mistakes at these conferences when I asked them too many questions and had been impatient for answers, where in fact my children were taking the time to first reflect on their learning before they answered.

完年级报告、考和老师们评语后,我必学生家我能深入了解我想知道的事情。我学会了听孩子们谈论的学。他会告我他做了什么,向我解释他们怎样学习,与我讨论他们的成功、他们的奋斗、他们的强项与需要提高的地方。这些特殊时刻让我能深入了解孩子在学校的情况。我发现如果一位老师能够支持孩子表达自我,他们就能回答上文中我提到的问题。这并不是一件轻而易举的事!过去,在参加这些会上我犯了许多错误,我问了许多问题并急于得到答案,事实上我的孩子在回答这些问题前需要花些时间回顾他们的学习。

 

As a school administrator, I support you having more ways to access information about how your child is doing - ManageBac, focus student emails from the Elementary and ECC, emails from advisors, reports by teachers etc. The part I really want you to take part in, relish, and learn from is the student-led conference. If supported well, your child will learn to take you on a journey that will teach you more about their learning then you could ever imagine. It’s the confidence in their eyes, the way they talk joyfully about their successes, and the honesty they display when they talk about struggling that is so unique. The dream is that you and your child use that framework to have “student-led conversations” at home, in the park, on a trip --- absolutely anywhere. I sincerely hope that you are able to enjoy learning as much about your child’s education as I have done with mine in these 20 years.

学校的管理者,我支持各位采用更多方式取有关孩子学的信息——或是通ManageBac,或是阅读小学部和幼儿园送“今日聚焦学生”专题邮件,教师邮件和教告等等。我非常希望各位极参加学生家会,并且享受其来的快取学生近况亦是学生家会的重要作用。受激励,您的孩子将会带您踏上一段新奇的旅程:在路上,您会见证们的习成果,那些似乎超出您的想象。他们眼中的信心、谈论成功时的愉悦和谈论克服困难时的诚恳都是独一无二的。最理想的是,您和孩子在家里、在公园、在途上——几乎在任何地方都可以使用“学生家长谈话”这个模式。我真诚地希望各位能够像我在这20年一样,享受与孩子分享教育的过程。

 

Sincerely yours,

诚挚的敬意!
