In this lesson, the student will learn and practice giving constructive feedback and receiving it.
The lesson starts with a mind map with clues, based on which the student tries to guess the final word (feedback). The student reads different definitions of the word and looks for the synonyms in a word cloud (criticism, assessment, critique).
The student learns the difference between an opinion and feedback. Then, they read about the origin of the word feedback and choose the best summary of the paragraph.
They learn about five different categories of feedback and try to match them with descriptions. Next, they mark the adjectives that collocate with feedback with + if it has a positive meaning and – if it has a negative meaning. They also learn which prepositions collocate with the word feedback and correct the mistakes.
This section ends with a discussion about the purpose and importance of giving feedback.
Video: Giving critical feedback
The student watches a video in which Simon Sinek explains how to give critical feedback. Then, they choose a sentence that summarizes the video best. The student learns what a compliment sandwich is and makes one using the given sentences.
Vocabulary and practice
The student matches the types of feedback you can give with appropriate pictures (response, advice, comment, etc.).
Video: How to give constructive feedback
After watching a video of an employer giving feedback to their employee, the student ticks the phrases that the employer used.

Based on what they learned, the student crosses out all phrases that shouldn’t be included in the feedback.
Furthermore, they practice giving constructive feedback in different situations/contexts.
