1 The most powerful, single modification that enhances achievement is feedback. The simplest prescription for improving education must be “dollops of feedback.” Hattie, J.A., PhD, Director, Melbourne Education Research Institute University of Melbourne Graduate School of Education
2 Areas of the brain are more active in subjects who are learning tasks and receiving feedback than in those subjects not receiving feedback. It is encouraging, motivating and fills the strong emotional need to be valued. David Sousa, Educational Neuroscientist “Brain-Friendly Learning for Teachers” (2009)
3 Feedback is essential for individual, community and organizational effectiveness and learning. David Perkins, Author, Project Zero, Harvard University “King Author’s Round Table: How Collaborative Conversations Create Smart Organizations” (2003)
5 Today’s WorkYou will provide feedback to your colleagues to engage in continuous improvement effortsYou will develop an understanding of the new Teacher Evaluation System rubric criteria
