August Issue Brief: Effective Feedback for Educators

Teachers need helpful feedback and support to improve their instruction and own their professional growth. But what kinds of feedback translate into improved teaching practice?

In Core Education’s August issue brief, we explore the research on teacher feedback, including teacher perceptions of feedback systems, characteristics of feedback that may influence teacher response, tools and resources to help coaches and principals give useful feedback, and expected results. We also explore how teacher preparation programs are using feedback to accelerate the growth of teacher candidates and share a survey that can be used to gauge teachers’ perceptions of feedback systems.
