Teachers and parents must worktogether to help students achieve their goals.
Hi, Ms. Jones. I'd like to schedule a meeting to discuss Johnny's latest test scores in math.
As you can see, Johnny's score on the last test is not at the level I'd like to see. I want to discuss ways to help him improve his scores.
This test was unfair and Johnny was tired. This doesn't reflect his intelligence.
I absolutely agree. This is just one test and it tells me what he currently comprehends. I can use this information to better accommodate Johnny.
I want to help him, but I don't know what to do. It's hard to get him to study.
Johnny's a good student and he's performing well in other areas. I've got a few ideas that I'd like to try to help improve his test scores, if you're willing to work together on this.
Sure. Let's give it a shot.
Great! I'll fill you in on the details... I'd like to stay in touch over the next couple months as we try some of the strategies and monitor his scores.
Sounds good. I'll contact you if I have any questions. Please keep me updated on how he's doing.
