Have you discovered Quaver’s Feedback Sandwich?

This new Interactive Whiteboard Element is a great tool for encouraging constructive feedback in your classes. Created for group projects in our 6th Grade Curriculum, we think the idea of the Feedback Sandwich is useful in any grade and have added the IWB to your Teacher Toolbox.

Feedback Sandwich Song

Click the Play button to hear the Feedback Sandwich Song – a catchy way to reinforce the idea that constructive feedback should be sandwiched between two positive comments.

Feedback Sandwich: Example

Or use the buttons to display an Example of good Feedback, Evaluation Starters to help students brainstorm, or a Blank sandwich for you to fill in with your class (use that Draw Tool from the IWB Menu!).
