Arts teachers use formal and informal strategies to assess their students’ progress, and to modify their own teaching practice. In this program, participants meet a vocal music teacher who splits his choir into groups that give each other feedback; he also has students tape record themselves during rehearsal, so he can judge their individual progress. A dance teacher critiques original choreography by a student and asks the student's peers to participate in the process; this feedback helps the choreographer deepen the impact of her work.
