Students who believe they can learn things if they try, as opposed to being naturally gifted, are more likely to succeed across multiple fields. So how can we as teachers help make our students incremental learners?
Give process-oriented feedback.
“Good job! You are really becoming a _____. Keep up the good work.”
“Study a little harder for the next one and you’ll do well. Ask any questions you need to.”
We can help our students change their patterns by giving them process-oriented feedback.
