Feedback is among the most powerful influences on achievement.

Feedback is among the most powerful influences on achievement.  – John Hattie

 

We all require feedback to grow, to develop, and to improve.  Having a growth mindset, a commitment to pursue excellence, demands that we seek the input of others on our journey.

As educators, we provide constant feedback to our students.  We give assessments, guide in the creation of products, and strive to cultivate the skill of working in teams to reach common goals.

As the educators, we must seek opportunities for students, parents, and community members to engage in conversations about how we can improve and do better.  We are living in a work of constant, rapid change.  Our students of today are the workforce of tomorrow.  We must model a growth mindset as adults if we expect our students to live that same mindset in the future.
