Bill Gates: Teachers need real feedback
Until recently, many teachers only got one word of feedback a year: “satisfactory.”
And with no feedback, no coaching, there’s just no way to improve.
In this TED Talk, Bill Gates suggests that even great teachers can get better with smart feedback — and lays out a program from his foundation to bring it to every classroom.
How does feedback take place in your school?
How often do you get observed? Are the observations a useful way for you to improve as a teacher?
