Giving Students Praise & Feedback
This storyboard does not have a description.
In addition, today I saw you concentrating and sticking with reading a more difficult article at least 5 minutes longer than yesterday - WELL DONE!
•To help develop a 'growth mindset' I will praise effort rather than intelligence. •I will also convey that intelligence and talent are changed by effort and work .
*Providing a rubric is a way to give preemptive feedback.
Rachel, I notice that you took time to read the rubric* and ask me questions to make sure you understood - excellent effort.
I really appreciate how you guys came in to class quietly, sat down & got your journals out to begin. You are showing me what mature, respectful, and responsible students you can be. It's so exciting to see that you can follow these directions, because now I can give this class 10 Dojo points -that's 10 points closer to a pizza party!!! I am so proud of this class.
Feedback is most effective when it is specific, genuine, and there is a reward system. Positive calls or notes to parents, giving group and individual points, giving coupons or prizes (even if they appear to not like them) is motivating.
Time to grade papers.. remember: 1. Write a couple of key points- not too much red marking 2. Focus feedback on one skill or one part of the project
I will use a key of symbols for marking papers and will write symbols in margins. Students having to translate will embed the lesson further.
I'm also going to get them to learn by comment rather than correction. On this lab report I'm going to write "I notice 2 errors in procedure." They will learn more by identifying their error.
I am also going to let them correct this assignment and turn it in again for a higher grade.
