Goal: Seek Feedback from Your Learners

Welcome to Cycle 7 of The 30 Goals Challenge: Make it Meaningful!

“It seems that teachers and students can be blithely, blissfully unaware that they have different interpretations for the things being said in class. Sooner or later though, they experience a rude shock.” – Easley and Zwoyer (1975)

Goal: Seek feedback from your learners about how you can improve a lesson, learning about a difficult topic, or an assessment.

Accomplish this goal: Give your learners an anonymous way to provide you honest feedback about lesson plans they did not enjoy, unsuccessful assessments, or topics they found difficult to comprehend. You could get learners to fill out a Google Form. I have provided a template below to copy and edit as you wish.
