You can almost consider students as your “customers” in that they’re the ones that have to sit through your lesson, participate in your activities, and prove whether or not they learned anything. While you don’t have to entertain them, I’ve mentioned several times that having engaging and relevant content is crucial and that every activity, handout, lecture, etc. you do has to result in learning. So in addition to having colleagues observe us and give us feedback, it’s important to know the temperature and climate of your classroom. And the only way to truly know is to survey your students.
This is Part 2 of my 4-part series on feedback. If you missed the first part on getting better feedback from your colleagues and administrators, be sure to listen to it here.
