Providing effective feedback to teachers is critical in improving teaching standards and student performance – but how can we deliver this feedback in a way that does not lead to misunderstanding, animosity or the undermining of teachers’ professionalism? In this book, Ralph Pirozzo outlines how schools can develop a sustainable, low-cost teacher feedback program that can be implemented in any school.
To assist schools in ensuring that any feedback provided to teachers is both accurate and constructive, Implementing an Effective Teacher Feedback Program presents the Pirozzo Process: a step-by-step method for building a sustainable, low-cost teacher feedback program that can be implemented in any school. Each chapter of the book is dedicated to one of the seven steps of the Pirozzo Process:
- Find your philosophy of leadership
- Create a Time Allocation Inventory
- Build knowledge of unit planning
- Learn to use a variety of thinking tools
- Develop conflict resolution skills
- Launch an effective teacher feedback program
- Apply four strategies for providing effective feedback
To accompany this book, Ralph has created a set of four A3 posters (not included in this listing) that is the perfect resource for educators seeking to inspire themselves and others as they embark on the Pirozzo Process. The poster set can be purchased separately here or together with the Implementing an Effective Teacher Feedback Program book here.
