Storyboard Text

  • Positive Narration. By drawing attention to desired behavior, teachers can reinforce instructions in a positive way.
  • Mrs. Djalal English Composition
  • I like the way everyone has come in on time and has paper and pencil out ready to get to work!
  • Praising effort rather than intelligence promotes a growth mindset. (Dweck, 2012)
  • Roberto, I can see you put a great deal of effort in your essay. You chose highly descriptive adjectives.
  • Feedback should be specific, substantive, and timely. Give specific praise to things the student has done well while indicating areas for improvement.
  • What do you think about combining some of these shorter sentences into longer one by using a who/which clause?
