The conferring notebook, which we refer to as our Pensieve, is an integral part of our daily work with children. Data collected during diagnostic assessments is easily transferred to the simple forms in the Pensieve. These forms, as well as the conferring sheet, calendar and guided group plans, keep our teaching time organized, focused and intentional. Whether small group instruction, or one on one conferring, we know who we need to meet with and for what, so no one slips through the cracks. The forms make it easy for our students to be participants in their goal setting and progress monitoring. Though it isn't crucial to function, we always purchase a beautiful notebook that we'll love to carry around and that will be easy to spot in one of the many places we'll lay it down.
