    Feedback is something that teachers do every single day. In order for feedback to truly be beneficial for the student and their learning, feedback should be intentional with each student. It is important for the teacher to know what types of feedback work with which kids and be able to use the different types to help grow each student. I like how #3 says to ”orient feedback around goals” because goals can be class-wide or individual. Either way, it is targeted for the students.
