Michael Rosen's response to the leaked new National Curriculum

Raising self esteem in your classroom

Raising the self esteem of learners:

Praise and Motivation within the Classroom | thoughtweavers

Particularly like this bit:

When issuing PRAISE think:
P = PERSONAL: Aimed at just one individual
R = REFLECTIVE:  The learner should be able understand they’ve received it.
A = ASSESSED: You, the teacher, should know why you are giving it.
I = IMMEDIATE:  Catch them doing the right thing and praise immediately.
S = SENSITIVE: Not all children like being praised in front of others.
E = EFECTIVE:  It should have a lasting impact on the learner.
