  1. The children's reaction to the fourth drawing is awesome!
    The video highlights the importance of being honest with one's correction,, as well as showing alternatives instead of just pointing out what is not right.
    Regarding the person whose task is being evaluated, it's necessary to understand the importance of giving a second, third etc try
