How to give SMART feedback
1. Be specific --> Focus on one thing only (E.G. They missed something from the brief or the type of language is wrong)
2. Make sure that it is relevant to the task (the review)
3. How can they improve it or where can they find the information if needed. (E.G. remember, reviews should have a title that is about just the name of the book/place/etc + a review)
