Blog of the Week: Tom Sherrington – The Five Forms of Feedback I give to teachers most often


Here is a link to a blog written by Tom Sherrington, he writes about these 5 areas of teaching that will help to improve what you are doing in the classroom:

Behaviour:  Be more assertive; establish what you want to establish

Questioning:  Ask more students more questions; involve everyone

Marking and Feedback:  Make all marking an instruction for action

Knowledge and Recall:  Specify what students should know; check that they do; give time for practice

Setting the standards:  Define excellence for any task.

If you would like to read more from Tom Sherrington then please read Dave and Vic’s post on when they heard him at Backwell in November.

Also his book called: The Learning Rainforest
