Here at Ngatimoti School we have been discussing how to give quality feedback and feed forward. We completed the “Treasure Hunt” from “Being in Their Shoes” The three main questions students need to be able to answer are: Where am I going? How am I going? Where to next? These are the questions Impact Coaches ask three students at the end of a teaching observation.
We watched an interesting video clip of John Hattie talking about these questions. He also suggests some thinking is needed about what the student understands the feedback to mean. How clear is our feedback? Do the students understand it? Do they have time to put it into practise? Are teacher comments bringing about positive change for students?
