Raise the status of students who are less respected within a group by bringing their praiseworthy work to the group’s attention to even out respect in group dynamics.

  • This can be done in small groups or in whole-class settings.
  • You may want to publicly and explicitly praise a student’s work or ask them to present their ideas to the group (which can implicitly convey your praise).
    • To effectively raise the student’s status, your praise should be public, specific, related to the student’s intellectual work, and relevant to the group’s current tasks.
