MFA Workshops

At some point several of the threads here address the topic of workshops in MFA programs. One new thread, focusing on individuals' current/completed MFA experiences, asks if we've found workshops "engaging."

That's an interesting question, but I'd like to pose another one. What kind of guidance have you received in your workshops on providing comments/critiques? In my experience (mainly in fiction) much of the success of a workshop depends on the critiquing skills of the participants. And that means instructors bear some responsibility for "teaching" the critique, too.

Thanks for your responses. It will be especially interesting to see if there are patterns and differences depending on genre here.
