The good thing about praising a child is that they feel confident in the work that they did. They feel as if they have accomplished something.
-Giving students praise and compliments can be a good thing, however it has its negative effects
Supporting Growth mindset
Giving a child praise can lead them to believe that they do not have to try hard. they do not want to disappoint so they often find an easy way to get a good grade. Such as cheating.
Promoting a growth mindset
To promote a growth mindset I would always encourage the children to do better
I would help them focus on the value of learning and that there will always be more to learn. I would teach them that keeping the same amount of knowledge isn’t going to benefit them that much.
Also I would challenge the children and get them to do activities that involve working together rather than being competitive with one another.
