Storyboard Text

  • Scenario 3
  • Time to give out graded homework from last week.
  • Hey Steve. You had a few minor errors in your calculations. Next time you do your HW, I suggest you write down every step of your calculations. I am certain that you will have fewer errors once you do that.
  • Other than that, you seem to have put lots of effort in this assignment! Keep up the good work.
  • Praise boosts student's confidence and motivation. It is especially helpful when students are struggling. Praise changes their beliefs about themselves and the way they see obstacles in a way that increases their tolerance for challenges. However, it's important not to praise things over which students have no control, such as intelligence.
  • The Importance of Praise and Positive Recognition
  • Timely - Timely Feedback is important so that students have " opportunities to use it while the attempt and effects are still fresh in their minds" (Wiggins 2012). Goal-oriented - In schools, students learn with goals. In order to keep students on the right track toward a particular goal, giving goal-related feedback is important. Otherwise, students may get stranded before reaching a goal. Actionable - Feedback needs to be specific and helpful. If a student doesn't know what change to make or doesn't grasp the point of the feedback, it is ineffective. On-going - Feedback should be given constantly so that student needs are supported at all times in a learning progress.
