## Reflection: Positive Reinforcement Explaining odd and even - Section 5: Closing

I encourage my students to give each other feedback using two very basic sentence stems:

1) I like the way that you_____________.

2) Next time, remember to____________.

When students give each other feedback on their math, their thinking, or their writing, they are able to  internalize the most important parts of the task.  Giving feedback is something that comes slowly and some students take a while to be able to give good feedback and receive feedback.  However, once it becomes a central habit in the classroom it can be a powerful tool to increase student achievement and understanding of classroom materials.
