Authentic Learning Strategy:
Provide Peer Feedback Protocols
Introduce feedback protocols to students that provide a structure for giving high-quality peer feedback. Example protocols include:
- Warm & cool feedback
- 2 stars and 1 wish
- 1 glow and 1 grow
- I like, I wish, I wonder

Students use the TAG protocol to tell their partner something they like, ask a question about their work, and give a specific suggestion. The teacher provided them with sentence stems to help with their feedback.
After sharing information through direct instruction, after watching a video or reading a text, use the think-pair-share strategy to ask students to reflect on their thinking and share it with someone else. You can then call on a handful of volunteers to share with the entire class if you like.
