Storyboard Text

  • Feedback: Specific and Constructive
  • Ongoing, constructive feedback and praise are important to help all students succeed.
  • Praise: Use it with all students
  • ah, some changes to make
  • High achieving students don't just need to hear "good job" - they still need to be given ways to improve.
  • Your essay was excellently organized and you provided concrete details for your thesis. Consider refuting evidence for an opposing opinion in order to strengthen your argument.
  • so, same next time...
  • A simple "excellent" is too vague- what was done well? What can be improved upon next time?
  • Excellent essay. Keep up the good work.

  • Students achieving below grade level also need praise. Only providing criticism is overwhelming and cause the student to shut down and not try.
  • I see that you used short story vocabulary in your essay- great! Let's meet at lunch time to look at the organization of your essay.
  • alright, maybe I could use some extra help
  • An overwhelming focus on the negative without an offer for help destroys the student- teacher relationship.
  • Your essay was poorly organized. I didn't understand your point. Were you following our writing lessons at all?
  • why bother
  • X
  • Give informative, specific feedback to help students internalize what they are good at. Hold high expectations for low achievers and involve them in a plan to achieve those expectations. http://www.edweek.org/media/fo-motivation-resources.pdf
