Properly crafted and individually tailored feedback on student work is proven to boost student achievement across subjects and grades. In this updated and expanded second edition of her best-selling book, Susan M. Brookhart offers enhanced guidance and three lenses for considering the effectiveness of feedback: (1) does it conform to the research, (2) does it offer an episode of learning for the student and teacher and (3) does the student use the feedback to extend learning? In this comprehensive guide for teachers at all levels, you will find information on every aspect of feedback, including
strategies to uplift and encourage students to persevere in their work
how to formulate and deliver feedback that both assesses learning and extends instruction
when and how to use oral, written and visual as well as individual, group or whole-class feedback
a concise and updated overview of the research findings on feedback and how they apply to today’s classrooms.
In addition, the book is replete with examples of good and bad feedback as well as rubrics that you can use to construct feedback tailored to different learners, including successful students, struggling students and English as an Additional Language or Dialect (EAL/D) learners. The vast majority of students will respond positively to feedback that shows you care about them and their learning. Whether you teach young students or teens about to graduate, this book is an invaluable resource for guaranteeing that the feedback you give students is engaging, informative and, above all, effective.
Teachers will find it even easier to implement the groundbreaking ideas presented in this resource with the Giving Students Effective Feedback Quick Reference Guide (QRG116087), a full-colour, laminated reference guide providing at-a-glance information ideal for use in the classroom.
