Creating a Culture of Feedback is a necessary read for anyone planning on helping students move beyond grades and develop as strong, reflective learners.”

Becky Prebble, teacher, Kaneland High School, Illinois

“[A] perk about this gem of a book is that they organize it into three chapters that make sense for the process of feedback, and they constantly use language that makes the reader think of IMPROVING, and not judgment—

‘Where am I going?
How am I doing?
What are my next steps?’

Yes. Yes. Yes. I've highlighted and stuck notes on many pages, knowing I'll be keeping this book close at hand.”

Joy Kirr, teacher, Thomas Middle School, Illinois.

“This book can be termed a quick read. Yet it’s packed with knowledge and helpful advice that can only benefit all of us and thus (and more importantly) our students. I believe every school’s professional library should have a copy; at the same time, it’s the kind of book I would buy for myself even if my school did own it.”

Bill Ivey, dean, Stoneleigh-Burnham School, Massachusetts
