Effective feedback is one of the three most important teaching skills teachers must possess to improve the student performance. The other two are effective planning for instruction and presenting (explanation and demonstration) motor tasks. However, the real learning occurs from teacher feedback. There are generally two kinds of feedback - verbal and demonstrations.
Verbal is when the teacher uses verbal communication to inform students what they are doing right or what they need to do to improve performance. In Moving To Success there two types of verbal feedback. One is called refinement. The other is learning cues.
· Refinement is the explanation teachers use to tell the students what they are doing correctly or incorrectly.
· Cues are a brief phrase that focuses students on specific part of the performance critical idea to learning the motor task.
Demonstration is feedback that teachers physically use to show students how they should be performing the task. Teachers may provide the demonstration or have a student who can perform the task correctly. Many times teachers will use a combination of demonstration and verbal feedback to help students understand how to improve their performance.
There are three general parts to a demonstration when being used as feedback:
· First, demonstrate the correct skill.
· Second, show the students what they are doing incorrectly.
· Third, demonstrate the correct skill again
Teachers must apply the four C’s to feedback for it to be effective.
Clear Correct Concise Constant
Clear – The feedback must clearly communicate to students what needs to be done to improve performance.
Correct – The feedback must be technically correct.
Concise – The feedback must be brief and to the point.
Consistent – Feedback is constantly being provided. It may be to the whole class, to small groups or to individual students.
