Student Feedback Power!

Ms. Akaydin's classes practice giving feedback to each other

Teaching Feedback Norms

Why should formative feedback come only from the teacher? Teach students how to give specific, timely, supportive feedback to each other! This way, they know if they are on the right track to mastering the content while there is still time to do something about it.

So, how did we do it?

Then students get to practice with a text while Ms. Akaydin and Ms. Cox confer and catch brilliant feedback conversation!

SO DID THEY GET IT?

Ms. Akaydin designed an exit slip to see if students could name effective and ineffective feedback plus give examples.

AND SHE CREATED AN ANCHOR BULLETIN BOARD SO STUDENTS COULD USE THIS THINKING AND LEARNING AGAIN!

Plus, kids think it's super cool to see their brilliance anchored in "public!"
