Hello! Welcome to my little corner of the web-o-sphere! I am very humbled to be a part of such an amazing book study this summer! i have learned so many amazing things that I can't wait to apply to my classroom in 3 short weeks!
Today, I will be summarizing Chapter 7, sharing my insights and brain vomit with all of you on how we can make this work in our classrooms.
Let's get started!
Looking at Chapter 7 we think about praise, constructive criticism, high standards and how this connects to motivation. When giving praise it is important to never include a child's personality traits or intelligence. When praise is focused on or includes references to a child's traits or intelligence in decreases a child's motivation and hinders performance.
We need to focus on praising the process, not the product.
In the video below I will go into greater depth of examples of what praise should and shouldn't sound like, as well as give you the information of where to find an awesome freebie that can be used in your classroom this fall!
I would love to hear your thoughts and takeaways from this chapter in the comments below!
Don't forget to head to my TPT store to grab your goodies!
Thanks for stoppin' by!
