Process Praise as Positive Feedback
When looking at assessment I was interesting in resources for giving positive feedback when doing assessments. I was interested in the term "process praise". Being a linguist, it was interesting how the semantics of the sentence could have such a devastating effect. This strategy could be used in the creating a safe learning environment as well.
