Research has indicated that without useful feedback, a teacher’s performance often plateaus by their fourth year of teaching. New teachers require immediate feedback that both affirms good practices as well as helps the new teacher identify areas of weakness as soon as possible. By doing so, we give new teachers an opportunity to make changes that improve classroom practice.
5 Types of Feedback 1.JUDGEMENT Comments that place a value (good or bad) on something The anticipation of judgement )positive or negative) from another person not only works against the development of self-directedness, it also shuts down thinking. From the work of Arthur Costa & Robert Garmston
