    9. 9. Thoughts and comments The feedback sandwich • Reinforcing statement • Corrective statement (don‟t use the word „but‟ to start this) • Reinforcing statement The “Pendleton model” • Learner states what was good • Teacher states areas of agreement and elaborates on good performance • Learner states what could have been improved • Teacher states what they think could have been improved The reflective feedback conversation • Like Pendleton model, but stronger emphasis on learner stating what could have been improved, exploring areas for improvement and getting feedback from the teacher on their suggestions20/06/2012 PENDLETON, D., SCHOFIELD, T., TATE, P. & HAVELOCK, P. 1984.
