When students finish tasks on their contract they are encouraged to book at conference with a teacher. In regular classroom settings there can be a long line of students waiting for the teacher and this means time wasted for students and undue pressure on the teacher. Conferencing 1 on 1 means quality time spent with the student and a real conversation is had about their learning on the task. This is the ideal opportunity for teachers to assess learning and students to showcase their understanding. Students seem to appreciate the quality time and are steadily learning to respect this 1 on 1 time while they wait for their conference.
