Giving Helpful Feedback

Today we had a meaningful conversation about the value of feedback. We watched a video called Austin’s Butterfly which taught us how to give helpful, specific feedback to others and how to use feedback to improve the quality of our work. We then went around the classroom and gave each other feedback on a recent assignment where students made posters about the Winter Olympics. After receiving critiques from our peers, we shared what we learned and talked about how to effectively give and receive criticism. We all agreed that the feedback we received today was doable and would help make our work look more aesthetically pleasing. We will find out how much we learned from this exercise as we put together our science projects over the next few weeks.
