As a growing instructor I am challenged by giving and receiving feedback. How do you guide students without demotivating them? How do you move away from students being focussed on marks, and more focussed on learning?

Giving and receiving feedback can be very challenging.
I was just participating in a discussion about classroom management, and a classmate posted this resource for establishing Ground rules. I thought it was a good tool to share.

Thanks to Christine for sharing this!
