Feedback….

IF

 

Feedback can be one of the most powerful ways that we as teachers impact our students’ learning…if the feedback is specific. This is also where we get into public commentary on exemplar work to hang in our classrooms so that our students know what it looks like to meet or not meet a given standard. After all, what good does it do them if they don’t know what they are working to achieve? I remember in year’s past (not in any of our teaching careers, of course!) when it was a great mystery to determine how one would get a given grade on an assignment. No more are those days. Now, by setting mock models of work with the commentary on them, our students know exactly what our expectations are of them as they are learning. And just think how much more they will learn with the expectation in front of them –in black and white!

After all, what good does it do them if they don’t know what they are supposed to learn?
