My students are all encouraged to share their thinking, regardless of how confident they may be. It's okay not to know everything or have the best strategy, but share your strategy and the whole group will help us improve.

[Optional] Synthesize a little! In one sentence, describe what you learned from your empathy exercises or analogous research. (Ex: Good advisors make a difference.)

Once you can teach it, you've internalized it!
