Sincere and honest praise encourages us to keep working
Literacy is work and like any kind of work needs encouragement from time to time. Sincere and honest praise encourages us to keep working toward goals.
Sometimes we aren’t sure how to praise, just as we often don’t know how to receive praise. To be most encouraging praises need to be as specific as possible. Too often we want to insert a “but” to the praise which erodes its impact.
Comments such as good, excellent, etc. cause confusion. Am I good because I got an answer right? Then I must be bad if I get it wrong. If I am excellent when I win a game, am I bad if I don’t?
