Praise in failure
By hiraeth, Updated
This storyboard does not have a description.
I failed! I can't do it right.
You did turn a bit too much, but your follow through technique is good. Why don't you get a drink and try again?
I'm proud of you for coming back and working to learn from your mistakes. That shows true grit.
The student is working on her shooting skills and struggling.
The student has grown frustrated. The teacher acknowledges the mistakes made, and points out what was done well. He provides opportunity for her to have a break, and encourages her to try again.
Here, rather than praise the achievement of getting the basket, the teacher praises the behaviour that enabled the achievement. This gives the student knowledge that it's the effort and grit that matter.
