In this chapter, I learned new ways to give and to accept feedback. Personally, I like getting feedback. I like it because it allows me to improve on my work. For example, whenever I write essays I like to have another person look at it so they can catch any small, or even big, mistakes that I may have done. This chapter also taught me that too much negative feedback can really take a toll on a person negatively. When you give somebody too much negative feedback, that person can start to think that they’re doing everything completely wrong and can really be detrimental to their self-esteem. To give good feedback, you should give the person more positive feedback than negative. You should use constructive rather than destructive feedback. Constructive feedback is more information specific and issue specific based on observations without using judgement. Destructive feedback is full of judgement and isn’t helping the person learn. When you get the feedback, it is best to reframe it and then reconstruct it to your advantage. Getting feedback is always a good tool to get but not when it only contains
Feedback helps me know what I’m doing wrong, what I need to fix, how my essay is going, and if they like it. In the past I have gotten useless feedback and it leaves me wondering if my essay was good or if they’re just saying it so that they won’t hurt my feelings. I dislike receiving feedback that seems so effortless, I like my feedbacks very detailed. Getting feedbacks that aren’t so detailed doesn’t help anyone, it only gets me worse and I’m not trying to get worse I’m trying to get better at writing. Feedbacks that are very detailed, whether it is disagreeing or agreeing is very helpful and lets me know what I need to improve on. After reading the workshop I have put the tips into consideration. I, myself, become lazy at times and won’t say very much, then there’s times where I do take my time to tell you my opinion. Now that I have a list of things to help me provide better feedback I will use them all so that my peers and I can improve in our
Feedback is a positive way to decide if your communication is effective and potentially useful. To get feedback, you could ask a colleague to watch over your discussions and ask them what you need to improve on and what your qualities are. You can also record your discussions and get multiple feedback by sharing your video among staff.
After designing this assessment and explaining the relevance of it to the students, I told them that there were four particular items that I was assessing during this exercise. The rubric for the assignment has four key items that I am using to judge student performance, which were based on their roles. One, the role of the researcher. Did they keep the group on task, help the group understand the document, did they give background knowledge of said document, etc. Two, the role of the summarizer. Both students in the group had the summarization role. However, I was looking to see if the included all the main points of the Fireside chat document. Three, the role of the illustrator. Did they use detailed illustrations or significant elements of the document? Finally, I was looking for application of technology. Did the Word cloud or wordle demonstrates an effective understanding of the document. The use of the rubric will be communicated to the students by explaining that each
The second piece of feedback that I used to reconstruct my informal report was adding an explanation for each decision criteria in my analysis. I needed to add a paragraph to my analysis for each decision criteria so that the readers
Throughout this semester we have had to write many types of essays. Although this is a college English class there is still room for improvement. I made much improvement during the semester of the class. I was able to identify my weaknesses. I learned how to make improvements to the areas I was having problems in. Although each essay we did was different I was able to begin with one essay and throughout the semester turn it into two other essays. I was able to change my style of writing to fit the type of audience I was working with. I will continue to work on my writing and keep improving it.
How you deliver feedback is as important as how you accept it, because it can be experienced in a very negative way. To be effective you must be tuned in, sensitive, and honest when giving feedback. Just as there are positive and negative approaches to accepting feedback, so too are there ineffective and effective ways to give it.
