Default Re: When the Teacher Becomes the Student

good points mark and little sage. this was a common error i used to make when i first got to korea, letting students openly evaluate my performance.

but at my last school, we approached the situation a little differently and it seemed to work as we got good and fairly accurate feedback. instead of the teacher asking, "how is my teaching or how is this class", the school's director would give the adult students a questionaire for them to fill out outside of class hours. my director would physically hand them an evaluation form and they would return it to him and then he would read through all of them and average the scores and feedback. then we would meet one-on-one with the director and he'd go over the feedback.

this way, it seemed like the school was interested in how the teachers were doing instead of looking like the teacher was interested in how they were doing.
