Flash Feedback [Grades 6-12]
Responding to Student Writing Better and Faster – Without Burning Out



May 2020 | 192 pages | Corwin

Beat burnout with time-saving best practices for feedback

For ELA teachers, the danger of burnout is all too real. Inundated with seemingly insurmountable piles of papers to read, respond to, and grade, many teachers often find themselves struggling to balance differentiated, individualized feedback with the one resource they are already overextended on—time.

Matthew Johnson offers classroom-tested solutions that not only alleviate the feedback-burnout cycle, but also lead to significant growth for students. These time-saving strategies built on best practices for feedback help to improve relationships, ignite motivation, and increase student ownership of learning.

Flash Feedback
also takes teachers to the next level of strategic feedback by sharing:

  • How to craft effective, efficient, and more memorable feedback
  • Strategies for scaffolding students through the meta-cognitive work necessary for real revision
  • A plan for how to create a culture of feedback, including lessons for how to train students in meaningful peer response
  • Downloadable online tools for teacher and student use

Moving beyond the theory of working smarter, not harder, Flash Feedback works deeper by developing practices for teacher efficiency that also boost effectiveness by increasing students’ self-efficacy, improving the clarity of our messages, and ultimately creating a classroom centered around meaningful feedback.
