Praising Otherwise
Saeverot, Herner
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v45 n3 p455-473 Aug 2011
After providing a general overview and critique of some of the main problems with teacher praise, in which I basically argue that praise binds and controls the students instead of liberating them, I go on to examine whether it is possible to praise without the intention to control the students. In this way I challenge conventional and standardising ways of praising, and argue that it is possible to make room for the singularity and uniqueness of students through praise.
