The Listening Teacher: Getting Feedback From Your Students - TeachThought

The Listening Teacher: Getting Feedback From Your Students - TeachThought | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

"

“The single most important thing I learned in this class is that I don’t have to have tons of homework to learn a lot.”

 

Mid-year or more frequently, I ask students to complete an evaluation form. I craft the questions carefully so simple answers are hard to write. Instead, I try to create specific, complex questions that cover the material, the classroom activities and the students—peers and the individual.

 

Many teachers shake their heads and avoid these exercises. They scoff that students would actually take the forms seriously or that the students will say anything useful. But I find the nature of the questions often elicits a straight answer—short, but helpful."

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, November 5, 2017 1:29 PM
This is a critical issue. The conclusion is retaining teachers is more important than recruiting them. This requires teachers learning from each others. Mentors are OK, but my experience was it was someone not associated with my school from central office. Leaders have to be more than managers, which is often what administrators are.

I think treating teachers as responsible people is also essential to retaining teachers.

Close Reading and Multiple Layers in Middle School - Choice Literacy

Close Reading and Multiple Layers in Middle School - Choice Literacy | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
... My intentional hunt for layered text is one reason I gravitate toward picture books as a middle school language arts teacher. Reading plain text is a different experience from reading text accompanied by images. Whereas a less experienced reader might read images to support his comprehension of the text, a more experienced reader analyzes images to seek connections between images and text to extend his understanding of a text beyond the meaning of the words alone. The simple act of rereading a text, adding the layer of images on top of words, can have a profound effect on a reader’s interpretation of its meaning.
