Students share appreciations for each other

Students give feedback to self and group


Essential Questions allow students to keep the main idea in mind. They can provide the motivation to keep asking, learning, and being curious, in pursuit of answers to big questions. Start each lesson in this session referring back to your essential question.

Use one of the following Essential Questions to guide this Session:

  • How do our experiences shape and define us?
  • How did this experience show me who I am and who we are?
  • Where have we come from and where are we going?

There are tons of educational strategies and articles on peer feedback on the web. The consensus is, as students gain familiarity and trust with peer feedback, it can serve as a powerful driver of learning and accountability in the classroom.

If you're hoping to implement more feedback with your group, take this lesson as a jumping off point for all of you. If you have already built a culture of feedback, know that it will show here, as you invite students into this new space of feedback on behaviors, attitudes, and social and emotional skills.
