Question details

1. In class we discussed a paper by Meuller and Dweck (1998) looking at the effects of praising intelligence versus effort. What was the main finding of this paper? Imagine that you have recently taken a job as a Math teacher in a 5th grade classroom. You have a range of students but two stand out to you. Both are not doing well. One of them, Hilly seems to be exceling in most of her other subjects but struggling with Math. The other one, Bernie, appears to be ‘getting by’ in all of his classes. Given what you know about children’s attributions of achievement, how might you help each of these students? Be specific in the strategies and the language you will use to communicate with them.
