In this Webinar

Have you ever said to a student, "I love the way you're working so hard!"? How about, "Here are the three things I'll be looking for in this next piece of work,"? Or perhaps you've said, "If you all work really hard for the next 30 minutes, we'll do something fun at the end of class!" You probably have—we all have. Even though these statements (among many others) are used with the best of intentions, they might actually lead students to disengage and learn less.
