Is Your Feedback Helping or Hurting?

It’s imperative to think about the feedback you need to give and how to give constructively.

Keep the words flowing by buying me a coffee.

08:20 Educating is one of the hardest jobs in the world, and once parents were stuck at home, educating their children through the first phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, they began to realize just exactly how hard it really is.

09:45 Find something your student does well and praise them. You just might be the only person who has done so.

11:00 As educators, it’s okay to get frustrated and overwhelmed, but bite your tongue and cap your pen. Don’t say something you will live to regret. If there is no positive purpose to your words, there is no point in sharing them.

11:15 How to Improve Giving Feedback.

Though it can be quite difficult, don’t compare learners. Students are individuals, so make sure you treat them as such.

12:10 It’s not enough to say “you did a great job” or “that was good.” You need to be specific when you give feedback, whether positive or negative. When you give feedback, you want to let others know how to move forward.

13:20 Don’t focus on natural ability: While this advice seems counterintuitive, hear me out on it. Provide your student with clear directives for what it takes to more forward toward their goals.

And don’t forget to give your students high expectation and praise when it is earned.

All students are worthy of praise, and even the worst are not to be subject to cruelty.
