Hello Everyone,

I came across the following article that I really wanted to share because when I think of creating a positive learning environment I see myself encouraging my students and doing my best not to hurt anyone’s feelings during class discussion or discouraging anyone…I can see myself praising my students for their contributions in the classroom setting to promote a positive learning environment..”Many educators have hoped to maximize students’ confidence in their abilities, their enjoyment of learning, and their ability to thrive in school by praising their intelligence.” ( link:

this article talks about the negatives of too much praise…very interesting…take a look!

Cheers
