This study focuses on the effects of repeated student evaluations of teacher’s effectiveness and its impact on improving instructional strategies in a secondary classroom. The secondary classroom is often a challenging environment for all teachers. Teachers in secondary education are always looking for innovative ways to engage students in to the lesson. Many teachers find it difficult to implement instructional strategies every student will find engaging. This is especially true for students with significant behavior problems within the classroom environment. Teachers are continuously looking for feedback on their instruction to improve their practice in order to create an effective learning environment. So why not help teachers improve their instructional strategies utilizing the audience they serve daily? What if students provided teachers with feedback on how to improve and create engaging strategies? The first section of this literature review defines feedback and explains its importance in relation to students and their academic achievement. The second section focuses on the effects of student feedback on instructional practices within a learning environment. The final section discusses possible interventions to improve instructional support in a secondary classroom derived from student feedback.
