Teacher Feedback

View this TED Talk:


Until recently, many teachers only got one word of feedback a year: “satisfactory.”
And with no feedback, no coaching, there’s just no way to improve. Bill Gates suggests that
even great teachers can get better with smart feedback — and lays out a program from his
foundation to bring it to every classroom.


Write a short response (about one paragraph) summarizing your thoughts and findings
from watching this TED Talk.
