## Reflection: Trust and Respect How Do I...? - Section 1: Set the Stage

This picture of our whiteboard with  student work really exemplifies the kind of culture I try to build in my classes.  I know that not all students are comfortable sharing their work with the class, but that often stems from a fear of failure and/or ridicule and a lack of confidence rather than an innate shyness.  By integrating sharing into what we do every day and by ensuring that any critique is done in a courteous and respectful way, I have even the most reluctant students putting their work on the board by the end of the first quarter.  Part of our culture is that there are often multiple students posting work simultaneously which reduces anxiety by allowing a certain level of anonymity while still letting all students share and critique.
