Anyone who spends time with children knows that praise works. It is a powerful motivator - praising children for good behaviour or good work builds self- esteem and self-confidence. Children love to collect stickers, certificates and rewards – so what better way is there to shape behaviour, encourage good work habits and produce confident learners? Teachers and parents alike know that praise is effective – we use it every day and we see the positive effect that it has on our children. However, constructivist practitioners would argue that praise in any form creates hierarchies and competition in the classroom, has little effect on genuine learning and is invasively judgemental rather than supportive. Constructivists would further argue that self-esteem cannot be built by external agency – teachers and parents can only create an appropriate environment in which a robust sense of ‘self’ can grow and develop. This book challenges traditional, embedded thinking about the role of praise. It questions the assumptions we make about developing self-esteem, about the ability of children to form their own independent judgements and the choices that children make regardless, rather than because of, contingent praise. What happens when children are praised? Read this book, listen to what children really think and challenge your own assumptions. Features include: Case studies and children’s work samples; Points for reflection which could be used for CPD sessions; Appendices containing behaviour policy samples; Pupil, teacher and parental perspectives. This book is aimed at practising and training Primary school teachers. It would also be suitable for NQTs who are starting to shape their own practice, experienced teachers who want to develop and question their own practice and students on BA Hons and PGCE courses.

Motivation to learn plays a critical role in students' academic success. This dissertation reports five experiments (N = 250) that increase children's motivation (specifically, challenge seeking and persistence) through storybooks. The first two studies examined how manipulating the similarity between the main character of a story and the participating child affected preschoolers' (Study 1) and kindergarteners' (Study 2) motivation as assessed by the choice of and persistence on challenging puzzles. Study 2 also compared effects for struggling versus non-struggling students. Study 3 examined whether persuasion would increase challenge seeking, when children convince someone else of the value of taking on challenges and persisting. Study 4 examined effects over time, and found that children showed a robust boost in challenge seeking two weeks later, especially those who were reminded of the original book. Study 5 examined whether the effects could be due to a particular aspect of the books, process praise, which sends a message that effort and persistence are effective and valued. Increasing children's motivation at a young age may set the stage for future academic achievement, creating a cycle of positive motivation and academic success.

You Are a Genius Child is a collection of ten poems that will enhance the parent-child relationship which coexists between you and your child. Children, no matter what their age, always need attention and appreciation as encouragement to be better people. Inspiring in the right way makes them feel more confident and increases their willingness to tackle various challenges when they arise. It also directs their behaviour and actions towards particular goals, enhances cognitive processing and consequently leads to improved overall performance. The author has written this book with inspiration from her personal experience. She has raised two wonderful boys by constantly appreciating and encouraging them for their abilities, and through her unconditional love for them. She has used the same words of praise and encouragement in this book to help other parents so that they too can enjoy their journey of raising children through appreciation. The book is filled with words of endearment for a child that will serve as motivation and encouragement in the form of poetry which is written in simple, crystal clear language. It features descriptive praise and words of encouragement that convey realistic and attainable standards for children. The ten poems contained in this book are enriched with the needed reassuring vitality for each child. This book will draw your child closer to you as he or she will acknowledge the admiration you bear in mind for him or her while listening to you recite the verses in the poems. The author believes that when children are told positive and affirmative words such as "You are a genius" repeatedly, the message gets embedded into their subconscious mind, and it becomes a belief that they are a genius. Their actions start proving the message. Good quality thoughts begin being produced in their mind, leading to productive action. They start loving themselves for the abilities they innately have. Verbal appreciation and encouraging gestures like clapping are very effective in a child's growth and development. Children need to go through a lot of experiences to learn different things in their life. They learn these things by the process of making mistakes, failing, dusting themselves off and trying again. Parent's constant appreciation and support are highly valuable in their journey. Children when praised for their abilities and qualities, love proving themselves by doing well. The author believes that less is more and, hence, wrote this book in the form of poems. It is easier to read and remember the lines and then read again and again. When you read one poem of the book to your child every day like a mantra, you will see the miracle gradually coming into focus.

This innovative text sheds light on how people work -- why they sometimes function well and, at other times, behave in ways that are self-defeating or destructive. The author presents her groundbreaking research on adaptive and maladaptive cognitive-motivational patterns and shows: * How these patterns originate in people's self-theories * Their consequences for the person -- for achievement, social relationships, and emotional well-being * Their consequences for society, from issues of human potential to stereotyping and intergroup relations * The experiences that create them This outstanding text is a must-read for researchers in social psychology, child development, and education, and is appropriate for both graduate and senior undergraduate students in these areas.
