    I LOVE the format for the learning task with the opportunity for feedback and corrections. I especially appreciate the realization that best-intended feedback tied to a grade is counterproductive and that a student must believe and trust the teacher. I’m confident in being able to build relationships with students, but I feel like even with a positive relationship it is so hard to overcome some of the strongly engrained fixed-mindset beliefs students hold. I love to do “My Favorite No” with students to celebrate the great math that was done while learning even more from the mistakes made. What are other ways to build in the ideas that making mistakes in math is GOOD when we learn from them?
