Warm and Cool Feedback
Each small group will share their team's Teacher Unit Design with the class for an initial Warm and Cool Feedback process. Each member of a team will use post-its to write down at least one (1) warm feedback and one (1) cool crit. All written feedback on post-its of each team will be collected by the Materials Manager and given to the session facilitator. The session facilitator will pass the post-its to the small group that presented. Below are some examples of sentence starters for Warm Feedback & Cool Crit.
