What better way for families to learn about what their student will be doing this year, than to hear from the students themselves? Transform Back to School Night by putting students at the center and giving them an opportunity to share the work they are engaged in! Rather than the typical Back to School Night where a teacher talks to an audience of parents, imagine an interactive experience, where students share what they have done so far, and what support they need from their families. In this way, parents get a real sense of what students are engaged in at school. Of course, teachers can still share logistics and planning in written communication, or in quick announcements as a part of the night.
