Feedback: The Hinge that Joins Teaching and Learning
Pollock, Jane E.
Jane E. Pollock, coauthor of "Classroom Instruction That Works," expands on the bestseller's feedback strategy in this groundbreaking work. While feedback is not a new concept, what is new is using it the way children use computer apps--to set goals, track their progress, and self-regulate their own learning. With only a slight shift in teaching strategy, this no-cost technique informs teachers while students are learning, not after. It engages and motivates learners and teaches 21st-century skills. It also helps students understand and meet standards. Educators will find a wealth of classroom examples and success stories that bring this proven practice to life. In addition to boosting achievement, "Feedback" helps students develop a lifelong learning skill that they will use in everything they do. The following chapters are contained in this book: (1) The Hinge Factor: Feedback; (2) Positive Deviants; (3) The Tell-Tale Students; (4) Learn to Engage; (5) Feedback From the Teacher; and (6) Feedback Changed My Teaching. References and Resources are also provided.
