Book Review on MiddleWeb
"Patti Kinney’s helpful book gives teachers practical, realistic, and research based ideas for making the shift from the traditional parent-teacher conference into student led conferences without sugar coating the process. At the same time, it offers a great deal of encouragement and will leave most teachers feeling like they too can 'Make it Work.'"
