How am I doing? I need some Feedback!

In physical education there are many different ways of teaching lessons and different aspects of teaching. One of the major aspects of teaching a lesson is giving feedback to the students. Feedback is a way for a teacher to help their students progress at something or let them know that they are doing a good job. Feedback is a good tool for teachers because it lets the students know that the teacher is paying attention so they will always try and it can help the student become better at the activity if they keep getting feedback.
Even though feedback is a very powerful tool to use, you must give the feedback to the student in a way that they will receive criticism the best. Such as a student will learn more from positive feedback or more from negative feedback. As a teacher you should always use positive feedback in a classroom setting. It could be different when you are coaching a sport. As a teacher and coach you must know how the students will react to different criticism.
