Share-a-thon – Focus on Feedback Strategies – November 17 and 19

Similar to the DESE share-a-thons in September, this is an opportunity for teachers of all grade levels and subject areas to learn and share strategies, resources, and best practices for remote/hybrid instruction with a particular focus on student feedback strategies.

Facilitators will start by taking a glimpse into the classrooms of two featured teachers in different content areas.  This will be followed by a chance to break out and discuss those ideas shared and more. Finally, everyone will have a chance to join with content-alike colleagues for a broader discussion of feedback strategies within our disciplines.

You are encouraged to come ready to share your resources and strategies for giving student feedback!

REGISTER HERE – Please register by Monday, November 16.
