Classroom Observation using Harvard's Ladder of Feedback

As an extension to my previous post on Harvard's Project Zero, here is the post on the Ladder of Feedback. The "Ladder of Feedback" is an approach to assessing for understanding that establishes a culture of trust and constructive support. The Ladder of Feedback follows a sequence of 4 steps when providing feedback.

1. Clarify
2. Value
3. State Concerns
4. Suggest.

We used the Ladder of Feedback to provide comments to an assigned group during our orientation presentation. We were tasked to present on Curriculum Design for our specific subject and each group had to listen to the presentations by other groups.

  2. Hi,

    I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

    We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

    It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

    The link to the app is:



    You can also search for the app on the app store as 'Augmenter'.

    Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

    happy teaching!
