Are Your Students Addicted to Praise?
Curwin, Rick
Instructor, v90 n3 p61-62 Oct 1980
The author asserts that students can get "hooked" on praise to the point that they limit their creativity and manipulate others in search of it. He notes that teachers too may use praise manipulatively. He suggests ways for kicking this habit, primarily through more objective reinforcement messages. Three educators respond. (SJL)
