Tell Me so I Can Hear: A Development Approach to Feedback and Collaboration
Drago-Severson, Ellie; Blum-DeStefano, Jessica
Journal of Staff Development, v35 n6 p16-18, 20, 22 Dec 2014
Feedback plays an important role in education. New teacher and principal evaluation systems, the Common Core State Standards, and Race to the Top initiatives, among others, underscore the critical importance of giving and receiving meaningful, actionable, and effective feedback to colleagues regardless of their roles in schools. A developmental approach to feedback can shed new light on the important work of educational leaders and feedback scholars across different disciplines and fields. A new approach to feedback, called feedback for growth, intentionally differentiates feedback so that adults, who make meaning in qualitatively different ways, can best hear it, learn from it, take it in, and improve their instructional and leadership practice.
