TAG – You’re It! Feedback That Empowers

Feedback is critical to what we do as educators – not only for ourselves, but as part of the learning process of the students’ whom we teach.

Author and educator Starr Sackstein writes about the power of peer feedback and how using it within the classroom not only empowers learners, but fosters independence, growth, and self-advocacy.

One way for students to provide feedback is through the TAG strategy. TAG is an acronym for (1) Tell something you like, (2) Ask a question, and (3) Give a suggestion. This strategy provides a quick, formative way for students to share feedback with their classmates, while also providing some “next steps.”
