Teaching Well: Feedback Loops

Creating an optimal feedback loop for students and families is always a challenge. Every year I try something new.

This year, I'm hoping to institute the following loop:
  1. Students receive homework once a week for math. The homework includes a paper copy and an online copy.
  2. The homework is scaffolded from easy-to-complete to more challenging. Students can choose the level of work they want to do dependent on their interest, schedule, and more. 
  3. Students will receive feedback once a week too beginning this week. I'll use the feedback form below via hard copy and/or online.
  4. I'll keep track of the feedback response using a code on a spreadsheet as well to inform teaching efforts as well.
