Title information

How can you provide your students with effective feedback that helps unleash curiosity in the classroom, instead of stifling it? This 8-page durable guide aims to help you motivate learners to be curious about their learning and propel them to mastery. Learn how to strike the right chord with feedback, both with students and with peers, not with a lock-step, one-size-fits-all program, but rather through supportive professional reflection that encourages a growth mindset among students and staff. McREL's Curiosity Works™ resources are based in part on a successful system-wide effort in Melbourne, Australia, that improved student achievement by helping teachers and school leaders develop precision without prescription, unleashing student curiosity. 

Combining these insights with McREL's analysis of best education practices from around the world, our Curiosity Works resources support a better way of transforming schools—not through top-down pressure, but by helping teachers and school leaders work together to develop shared professional expertise and leverage the power of motivation and curiosity.
