The purpose of feedback is to:
- acknowledge evidence of progress
- search for and share evidence of “the known” within the student’s misunderstandings
- provide the student with a focus for the next steps of learning
Here’s an example of a very simple template used to gather and record this information during your conference with a student. Sharing the information ensures the student is aware of progress and has a sense of what’s coming next. It also provides an ongoing record of student progress that is useful for you, the students and the parents.
