When i started my primary school education at the age of five (5), i was one of the slowest students in the class.I believed that i am not capable. I believed that the students who did well owed it all to their good genes. Even the teacher was very fond of them. It was not until I shifted to a new school in upper primary level that i realised a good teacher can convert the slowest student to the brightest. My new teacher recognised my learning disabilities immeaditely and started paying attention to me. Whenever we were doing an exercise she would create a very warm atmosphere, she rewarded good work. Whenever a student provided a correct answer, the whole class would sing their praise. we would clap as we sing, "well done, well done, our clever girl! You shine like a star!" This was a very good feeling that motivated us to do even better just so we could be celebrated again. Our teacher would also buy stickers, whenever we got a 90% or above she would place a gold star on our workbook. She rewarded those with 80% with a silver star and those with 70% with a bronze star.This gave us a push towards success. At the end of that year, i was a straight A student. Since then i excelled all hrough my academic life. Based on my own experience, i can say that indeed praising students yields results because: 1)it encourages students to take part in class activities without fear 2) it boosts confidence 3) Creates trust in the teacher. This enables tthe student to approach the teacher with problem questions 4)It motivates students to work harder and read more 5) Shows the student that he/she has the ability to do well and is capable Praise can be done in public in a class setting, or directly to the student in private through tutoring or extra lessons.This is because sdome students are introvert and may not appreciate being singled out in front of others. So the teacher has to respect that. It is important to let a student know that he/she did well and is improving in their studies. A teacher needs to be specific about the student did so that they can repeat the same strategy. For example, if a student studies hard for an English test by reading novels, and the teacher says your "English composition was very well written with minimal grammar and puntuation errors," the student will be encouraged to read more novels. The teacher should also be careful not to diminish or disregard other students' while praising another as this would affect their morale. Example, a teacher should not say, "well done for getting first prize on the science fair." He/she should rather "you have some very creative ideas, keep it up." This encourages one student while it does not affect the confidence of other students. A teacher should be sincere and avoid praising students too much lest it loses meaning. Praise should only be done when the teacher means it and not for every little thing. Students need to know what the expectations are and how the teacher assesses their work. Praise should also be done even if the outcome was not upto the teacher's expectations. This applies to students who are very challenged, if they are able to understand and perform well on pqarts of an activity/ exercise even if they did not do well as a whole, they should be praised for the work thry have done right.
