Giving Feedback in Language Classes – S$6.00
This booklet addresses questions about why, when and how to give feedback in language classes. The advice and examples are based on many different contexts: classes of children and groups of adults, classes in English speaking communities and in places where there are few out-of-class opportunities to use the language. Although the examples are all given in English, the same principles could apply to the teaching of any language. Tasks throughout the booklet help teachers reflect on current feedback practice and consider new ways of giving feedback.
