Effective instruction provides students with specific feedback

Feedback is a very significant component of effective instruction. Feedback is effective when it helps your students answer three questions:

  • Where am I going?
  • How am I going?
  • Where to next?
Hattie & Timperley, 2007

Sometimes teachers will give good feedback about the subject content of a task (for example, the science ideas) but neglect the literacy aspects (for example, the paragraph structure or language choices).

Effective teachers will engineer effective classroom discussions and other learning tasks that elicit evidence of student understanding; provide feedback that moves learners forward; activate students as instructional resources for one another; and activate students as the owners of their own learning (Black & William, 2009).
