Students need positive motivation, from their teacher.
Lately, when my adult students for example read a piece of a story I’ve invented and composed on a worksheet, and after they have made short summaries of each paragraph, I correct them a couple or three mistakes or errors, but I try also to reckon the good job they’ve made, and the effort they’ve invested.
The students appreciate that gentle recognition from me. This positive motivation leads them to improve. / Photo from: AdultStudents www ccu edu
