## Reflection: Accountability Complex Doesn't Have to be so Complex! - Section 5: Closing

Students appreciate finding out what they did wrong and how to fix it.  I see this time of the lesson is increasingly becoming more and more important.  As students take the first 20 minutes of the class time persevering through the problems, they long for a pay off.  They want to know if they were correct or not and if not how do they fix what they did wrong.  I am seeing a transition happening with each of my closings.  Students are beginning to build the respect for their mistakes made.  They are beginning to see that mistakes are okay.  This is a great thing. Students are becoming a bit more comfortable taking risk and not feeling embarrassed or defeated.  YES!

Mistakes are great!
Accountability: Mistakes are great!
