This is my feedback folder. Found right inside my door so that when you enter or leave the room it looks you in the eye...it works! Both adults and students use the feedback form to give me feedback (will share some student feedback samples below). The heart and brain feedback stickers are used when giving feedback to students. The smaller labels (2x4) are great to help keep feedback short, sweet and specific. Below is a short gallery of some of the most recent feedback that I have gotten from students. Important to note, this is a project. It has been accepted, normalized and celebrated in my classroom but it is still a work in progress. We grow with feedback. So we own it!
Since getting this feedback I have:
- Moved our desks
- Reviewed and carefully planned introduction to new material in math
- Continued pun and cliche of the day
- Continued to expect students to track the speaker
- Worked on my story, which was to talk less (think economy of language rather than silent treatment). Shortly after the new year, instead of asking students to write goals I asked them identify an area they would like to improve and tell a story. Actually two stories, one in which they were unsuccessful and one in which they were successful. They formed Personal Learning Networks with students who had similar stories and they have collaborated and held each other accountable. And have held me accountable as well.
Have you gotten any feedback lately?
