“Developing a Coaching Lesson Feedback Model in your School”
"Developing a Coaching Lesson Feedback Model in your School"
We hear so much in schools about giving effective feedback and Hattie and Clarke’s research (2018) has proven that effective feedback is the most important factor impacting on student progress. Traditional lesson observation continues to be challenged as it provides only a snapshot of a teacher’s practice in the classroom. However, when lesson observations or visits feature within a more collaborative approach to feedback, development and learning, the highly nervewracking experience for the teacher can be replaced with a meaningful learning experience through effective feedback. This can therefore be a powerful tool for teachers’ and school leaders’ professional development. This paper explores how a coaching approach to giving feedback following lesson observations can support a deeper and more meaningful level of learning for both the observed and the observer.
