Day 9: The art of a compliment
Challenge: Jot down these four ideas for offering encouragement on a sticky note, and place it on your conference record sheet. As you confer, keep a tally of the types of compliments you offer. (Don’t forget to write the compliment on your conference record sheet as well.)
