      We know feedback is a key ingredient to learning that allows teachers to guide students' progress and encourage them at challenging moments. But knowing how to give it—and request it—isn't always intuitive. To strengthen students' sense of how they are performing and where they're headed, educators can consult Susan M. Brookhart's quick reference guide, Giving Students Effective Feedback. This six-page tool provides guiding questions and classroom examples that outline when giving feedback is helpful and how best to deliver it.
      Teachers can also seek feedback by asking students directly about challenges or successes in their learning. Survey Monkey offers a free guide with templates for using the platform to get a better understanding of student perspectives on a range of topics, from the difficulty of a lesson to moments they're most proud of from the year.

      EL’s experienced team of writers and editors produces Educational Leadership magazine, an award-winning publication that reaches hundreds of thousands of K-12 educators and leaders each year. Our work directly supports the mission of ASCD: To empower educators to achieve excellence in learning, teaching, and leading so that every child is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.
