As an academic writer, you are expected to be critical of the sources that you use. This essentially means questioning what you read and not necessarily agreeing with it just because the information has been published. Being critical can also mean looking for reasons why we should not just accept something as being correct or true. This can require you to identify problems with a writer's arguments or methods, or perhaps to refer to other people's criticisms of these. Constructive criticism goes beyond this by suggesting ways in which a piece of research or writing could be improved.
So what are the best phrases for constructive criticism?

Answer
Most people are very thin-skinned and easily upset when it comes to receiving criticism. Constructive criticism is achieved when criticism is given in a way that politely instructs the person being criticized on how to better accomplish the goal or task. Constructive criticism's main goal is to better a person or group, not to tear down confidence or self-esteem. Each situation of constructive criticism must be handled on an individual basis, as every person reacts differently and requires a certain level of sensitivity. Before giving constructive criticism, one should make sure to speak to the person about the issue at hand and use methods that benefit his particular personality. A constructive criticism focuses on the situation, not the person. The feedback sandwich method is a popular method of giving constructive criticism. It is often used in Toastmasters and in the corporate environment. Be specific with your feedback. Comment on things that can be actioned upon. Give recommendations on how to improve & at last my final tip for giving constructive criticism is not to make assumptions. Keep in mind that giving criticism is a skill that, like all skills, can be mastered through learning and practice. Always Remember:  Think well, act well, feel well, be well.

I am trying to understand a comment made by somebody with respect to a presentation that dealt with solitude and nature. The comment is " Professor Tison had been struck by the indifferentism expressed in the paper. It reminded him of the English poet mentioned by Emerson whose teaching amount to this- that nothing really mattered very much."
The "indifferentism" here means apathy towards the world and mundane matters. I am aware that Emerson was very much influenced by Wordsworth's various ideas including solitude and nature and he also critiqued him a lot that we can see in his journal entries and works like "English Traits", etc.
But I am wondering, did Emerson ever feel that Wordsworth was indifferent to the human society/problems/ humans?
Many thanks well in advance for your replies !

Analysing my data using template analysis.  Have used apriori themes in initial template, and am describing the process of modifying the template as i go along.  Am getting a bit confused about codes and themes, i am collecting  more codes as i analyse say each batch of 3 interviews, then reviewing these codes,  re-organising and amending the  template and going onto the next 3 etc. I will then go back through all the data with the final template.  Should my final template be my final themes and sub themes? Or  can they be my final codes, which are then subject to further reorganising into final themes?  Many thanks for any advice! (Its for my masters and getting close to panic stage......:)
