Peer Review and Constructive Feedback

Effective school leaders create peer review and feedback loops to advance adult development that leads to improved student performance. By establishing peer review and feedback loops, school leaders support teachers in defining and achieving individual and shared goals. They also serve to validate expertise that teachers bring to their work as practitioners. Because of the accessibility of peers, the ability of a teacher to receive frequent, real-time feedback through either process is enhanced. When school leaders implement peer review and feedback loops, they leverage the efficiency and effectiveness of both to activate teachers’ contributions to the continuous improvement process, resulting in authentic solutions to real-world issues in school.
