Of all the tools we have as teachers, wouldn’t you agree that praise certainly numbers among the most powerful. When students feel pride in their accomplishments from us praising them, they will sense their success. They need to know when we are happy and pleased with their progress or achievements. True, our goal should be that they sense personal fulfillment from within, however, we have to show them how proud we are of them along the way. Adapting that well-known maxim, “We must help them to take pride in how far they have come, and to have faith in how far they can go.”
