Have you heard of the sandwich technique? It is where one compliments first, then adds the comment where one needs improvement, and closes with another compliment. This is an old technique that is used in many industries and in fact is used in many of the faculty trainings I have gone through. Most institutions I work for request that faculty use this technique. Have any of you noticed myself or other facilitators using this on you? Do others use this technique or do you have something new you can share?What do we think about this?

Do others use this technique or do you have something new you can share? The old sandwich technique! I have heard of this many times. It is when a manager has to give an employee criticism or constructive feedback and does so in a respectful and positive way by first giving praise, then giving the bad news, then ending the conversation with more praise. It is a three step procedure consisting of praise, followed by the criticism, followed by more praise. In other words. the bad news is sandwiched in between the good news! I personally think that this is a good system that helps to soften the blow when bad news is about to be delivered to an employee or a student. However, I also think that it benefits the manager/educator more because it helps them out of a difficult situation and makes them feel better about themselves delivering bad news to good people. Overall though, the manager is more at ease delivering the bad news, and the employee feels better beginning and ending the conversation on a positive note. I have been the receiver of bad news using the sandwich technique, and personally it only made me feel worse having someone dance around the issue, but I am a very direct person who appreciates honestly and not a lot of flowery commentary!

All teachers get pink slips at Rhode Island school
http://ac360.blogs.cnn.com/2010/02/24/all-teachers-get-pink-slips-at-rhode-island-school/ This was very interesting. In this school in Rhode Island, the students are doing very poorly academically. Teachers had three years to turn this around and improve tests scores. When they failed to do so, the school board voted to fire them all and start with a clean slate of new teachers. It is a very drastic and bold move, but in my opinion, it was a much needed one. It seems very obvious that teachers are not doing their jobs if their students continue to fail. The video said that less than half of this schools students actually graduate, and I think that this statistic is shameful. The graduating statistic should be in the high 90-percentile and not under 50-percent. By replacing the teachers who are failing to provide an education to the students with new ones, it can only be an improvement. I also listened to the second part of the video where the guidance counselor was being interviewed. After hearing this, I secretly hoped that he was the first one with a pink slip! He actually blamed the students for being too transient and improvised as the problem. The problem was with him and the other 87 teachers who failed these students by not doing their jobs correctly and not with the students themselves. Even poor students have the ability to learn if they are properly motivated to do so. Reference:
