3 Ways of Getting Student Feedback to Improve Your Teaching

3 Ways of Getting Student Feedback to Improve Your Teaching | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Why You Must Reflect and Improve
Students are what we do. They are the center of our classroom, not us. However, as a teacher, I am the most impactful single person in the classroom. Honest feedback from our students will help me level up.

I've been doing this for more than ten years. Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I cry -- and sometimes I'm mortified. But I can honestly say that every single piece of feedback I've received has made me a better teacher. And great teachers are never afraid of having or inviting hard conversations. This is one of best practices that has helped me to be a better, more excited teacher every year.

Student Voice is invaluable to the effectiveness of the educator.
Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, April 2, 2015 10:20 AM

i agree!  As a teacher, I always sought to improve and make my classroom more effective for students.  End of year surveys helped a lot.  I also had students write letters to next year's students.  This gave me insight into how the course and classroom activities helped or hampered their learning.  summer is a great -- there is actually time to reflect.  as lessons change, there is time to do researxh and gather resources.

It can be tough to hear others criticism  of us and our work, but it can help you improve.

A Better Way to Grade

Giving students the unique feedback they deserve. We help make giving feedback easy.

 

When you have classes full of students, all with individual strengths and abilities, providing everyone the unique feedback they deserve can seem like an impossible task. Handwritten comments are time consuming, but letter grades without feedback don't help students at all. There's a better way. We can help you find the solution to fit your needs.

I plan to use the 3-2-1 method in my very next class. Great ideas.

Great graphic that summarizes things we've all heard before, but helps keep them in mind so we really do utilize them with students.

13 Concrete Examples Of Better Feedback For Learning

13 Concrete Examples Of Better Feedback For Learning | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

In September 2012 Grant Wiggins had an article published 'Educational Leadership' (which is posted in this Scoop.it). That article was widely read and this article goes one step further, provide 13 detailed examples of how to provide better feedback for learning. 

The examples range from a welding class with a performance task, to a 6th grade teacher working with students on peer review and self-assessment to 1st graders working on a map of the school. An additional 10 examples are provided.

This post not only provides examples but will probably spark you to look at how you provide feedback and come up with some new ideas to use with your students.

Five Peaceful Steps To Delivering Critical Feedback

Five Peaceful Steps To Delivering Critical Feedback | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

I know of something even more difficult and frightful and face-flushed-all-red than getting feedback.

Giving it.

In my role as assistant principal, I give a lot of feedback.  I give it to students; I give it to staff; I provide it to parents when appropriate.  I give it when requested and formal (e.g., teacher evaluation) and when it is not solicited, or expected, or necessarily wanted.  So why is it so difficult?  After all, isn't the "giver" of feedback the one in the driver's seat, the one in the "active" (command) position, while the recipient plays the passive role, listening (maybe) and absorbing (possibly) your wisdom?

*take a deep breath, *plan what you are going to say, * be honest, *thoughtfully choose the location, *check back with them later.  All good suggestions.
