Feedback comes in many forms in the realm of education. Students are given report cards, teachers are given evaluations, and parents are given their children back for the summer. All joking aside, whether it be students, parents, or educators, one must wonder if there is any feedback given with the numbers, letters, or scales. If feedback is truly given, is there room for growth or advice for how to improve?
Adam Grant, author of Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World (2016), provided insight into the classic "sandwich approach" often seen in education (compliment-critique-compliment). After sampling a few sandwich styles, he concludes that real feedback is gluten-free; discard the bread and get to the meat of the conversation. ~@WilsonMellissa
