While essays and other graded assignments are important in academics to assess their understanding of thematerial, the rubric has a very defined criteria. Kizlik (2015) states, "Usually, criteria are expressed in some minimum number, or as what must be, as a minimum,included in a student response" (para. 1, "3. The Criteria"). With rubrics there are specific things that the teacher is looking for and the minimum isn't truly something the student should strive for. I suppose the objective could be improving essay writing, but the minimum would still be too detrimental for a student's GPA.What else could the learning objective apply to?ReferencesKizlik, B.

I then used positive sentences with action verbs to lay clear path. I
was also very honest and suggested that if life-style changes did not occur, this new diagnosis could take over. In addition, I gave tools to be used when anxiety and emotional breakdown happened, not only so that the client would feel in more control, but so the staff would not be alienated as well. I hope I made a positive impact for this person by using teaching skills.Have you experienced any emotionally charged teaching moments? How did you handle them?

In my experience, many patients have misconceptions about their medical conditions, even after many years with that condition. At my facility, the nurses regularly give patient education to combat this issue. When I have a patient with a new medication, I usually print literature associated with the new medication and/or diagnosis. I provide teaching using
