  39. 39. Examples of Individual Conferencing Topics What are you thinking about? ● ● ● ● ● ● ● Listening to them read aloud (running record) noting strengths and weaknesses Silent Reading Observations Teacher and Student Goal Setting Analyze data from MAP, Explore, Plan, and WKCE (Progress Monitoring/Interventions) Build background knowledge Vocabulary Strategies Fix Up Strategies
