Opportunities for Recognition Can Improve Learning and Performance
French, Ron; Henderson, Hester L.; Lavay, Barry; Silliman-French, Lisa
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v84 n7 p51-55 2013
Physical educators need to make an effort to catch students being good and recognize them for their positive accomplishments. Unfortunately, it is usually the students who act inappropriately who receive the majority of the teachers' attention. In order to help increase learning and improve performance and behavior, the physical educator must pay attention to all students and provide frequent, positive social reinforcement and constructive feedback. This article describes techniques that can be used to increase the number of opportunities for recognition and student-teacher interactions.
