Originally posted by Joan Marie on tribe.net.Hey dancers, br/br/How do you handle providing student feedback. For example, if you have a student that has a beautiful arabic, do you praise that student in front of the other students or provide it to her privately. I provide general feedback to the entire class and then general to each student as well. How do other teachers handle this?br/br/Thanks. Joan
Originally posted by Wendy on tribe.net.I tend to give more individual one on one critique as Im circulating the room, making corrections. With newer students, I tend to tell them directly as Im correcting them. In the more advanced levels, I will give both general and personal feedback, sometimes in front of the whole room, sometimes not.
Originally posted by Jennifer on tribe.net.I praise the whole group (and criticize - "everyone, elbows up more") - and also give feedback both in front of the room, and individually as I move through the room. When I make a comment at the front of the room to a specific person, I try to a) give out several comments at once, quickly, so that it doesnt draw attention to one person, and b) use a fairly neutral tone of voice. ("Glenda, chest up more; Looks good, Tiffany; Carly, watch your levels - only the hip moves up, not the whole body.")br/br/I also consider each persons personality - I can tell that some people would be uncomfortable if I said their name in front of the whole class, whereas others dont mind.
