Teaching Squares and Small Group Instructional Feedback

Building a teaching square or triangle involves two or three other colleagues, agreeing to visit each other's classes to learn from each other. Small Group Instructional Feedback is a process whereby your students give feedback through a facilitator and then the facilitator meets with you and your students to debrief.

Both processes are simple, fun and enlightening. If you are interested in participating in a teaching triangle/square or small group instructional feedback, please contact your Learning Fellow.
