Praise students for receiving feedback well to encourage them to be open and receptive when they get information that will help them improve their learning.

  • Students who are receptive to receiving feedback.
  • Explicitly acknowledging the good reception of feedback helps reinforce important behaviors for learning.
  • Acknowledge what a student did well and point out why you appreciate what their actions when a student does a particularly good job accepting praise or criticism.
    • This helps reinforce the growth mindset.
    • Be careful not to praise students for being good at something (innate ability), rather praise them for working hard to succeed.
