Giving Feedback Part 2

As a teacher who is focused on giving effective feedback to my students, I find the biggest obstacle is time, and I use organization to help maintain levels of feedback in my class.  Here are some strategies I have gathered to help with time/organization:

Treasure Books: Each student maintains a small workbook/notebook  of the feedback when we conference. We use the same 3 part feedback, and both the student and I write in the book. I also staple/glue conferencing assessment sheets we might do together (to essentially create an anecdotal notebook for each kid).

Daily Conferences: I have assigned students to each day of the week, in the same order, so I can ensure I either meet with all four of them as a group for guided instruction, or have a student-lead conference on a individual basis.

Success Criteria: Students help create checklists and visuals for their own work and then we use them. Each checklist is interactive based on the criteria of the assignment. For example in an assignment on re-telling a fiction story, you could have the student circle their setting in yellow, underline the resolution of the conflict in purple, etc.

What do you do to organize your time so that is most productive for you and your students?  Leave a comment below or join the discussion on Facebook.
