Now, I thought that I would compliment students when they did well in an activity. By doing this, I think we will be able to build their positive attitude and self-respect. Actually, there are some students who have improved noticeably. In response to my praise, some have smiled back in a timid way. Another student even became calmer and more focused. Also, we had two girls arrive late in the school year, and although I was concerned how they would feel about the lessons they had missed and not being able to follow the class, both normally model in the class with our teacher trainee. “We will tell the Founder of NEH not to take you back,” they always said to us.
