In order to make judgements of quality of teaching and progress over time, Ofsted inspectors are looking for high quality feedback which crucially is acted on by the student. Too often what is seen is feedback without any response. Having made a conscious effort to make sure questions were being asked in feedback, and students were being given time to respond, I found that this was not always being picked up through book scrutinies. Good practice was there, it just wasn’t being seen.
Inspired by the practice of @keeping18, marking plasters by @ASTsupportAAli and @ListerKev, and blog posts from @MaryMyatt, @HuntingEnglish, @learningspy and @shaun_allison
I created a set of stickers that take on the characteristics of mobile text bubbles.
Stickers are now used during feedback to ask questions by staff or peers. The two colours highlight dialogue making both questions and responses highly visible. Objective achieved.
