Feedback to Feed Forward: 31 Strategies to Lead Learning
As a leader, you know that feedback is essential to teachers’ growth and development. But crafting the right feedback can be daunting. This how-to book, designed for leaders in all roles and at all experience levels, provides a dynamic yet practical leadership model focused on precisely those key tasks. How do you conduct comprehensive observations, accurately analyze lessons for effectiveness, and develop high-leverage action steps that bring lasting change to teacher practices and student outcomes?
“Leading learning meets specificity! Tepper and Flynn take the most powerful strategy for change we know—feedback— and comprehensively break it down into themes that are well-grounded in theory and practice. Treat Feedback to Feed Forward as a master cookbook. Look for what you need and delve into it with a connoisseur’s appetite.”

Learner-Focused Feedback: 19 Strategies to Observe for Impact
Observing to determine how and if students are learning is complex because the concept of learning is complex. Building on our foundational standards of effective observation and feedback and twenty-one core skills introduced in Feedback to Feed Forward, Learner-Focused Feedback offers new strategies for engaging with learners in a variety of ways within different instructional structures. You will find this second comprehensive guidebook serves as a valuable companion or extension to our first book.
“A leader’s most important job is to help teachers understand their impact on student learning. Collecting evidence of learning through observation is a difficult skill to master, but Tepper and Flynn have given us the tools we need in this essential new resource.”
John Hattie, Graduate School of Education, University of Melbourne, Australia
