 Teachers can also get feedback from kids concerning their personal favorites, current events,  and hopes and dreams and do a class comparison. This activity can be connected to just about every discipline. It is also a good break from the hard-core core curriculum. 


5. Gathering Feedback from Students

Giving students a choice--and you can notice and acknowledge that choice. You learn more about the kid, and the child feels validated that you noticed.
You can learn a lot about a child by their choices.
