Implementing Practice Based PD

Giving Feedback During PD


You've done it! Your professional development meetings are fundamentally practice-based, with teachers trying out new strategies in role-playing sessions. But wait! You're missing a key ingredient as you try to promote growth among your teaching staff: feedback!

This Mini makes the case for delivering consistent and direct feedback in every practice-based PD session. It will also explain how to promote a culture of feedback in which your entire staff is proficient at giving and receiving productive feedback. After all, you're just one person, and there's a ton of feedback to deliver across your whole staff.
