Teach kids to seek and give feedback and to revise so they continue to try and to improve

Instructions

  1. Invite kids to do multiple drafts and seek feedback from others
    Creating different versions of a drawing or a story can encourage kids to learn the value of revising their ideas. Getting input from others also helps them to continue evolving their standards. They learn to embrace confusion and to stop expecting perfection on the first try.
  2. Encourage those giving feedback to be specific and kind: to critique the work rather than the author
    When sharing subjective opinions, we say “I think” rather than “This isn’t good.” We  show humility and curiosity, by framing suggestions in terms of questions, for example: “I’d love to hear why . . .” and “Have you considered . . .”
