    Dear Alaya,
    That is why both praise and correction need to be given to individual human beings and not to just indirectly to the group in general. Some teachers, in fact, I would say many teachers either give no feedback at all ( especially in workshop situations), or they just make general statements, so that students never know if they are being addressed or not. Some teachers do not see individuals, but an entity known as "the class". It's very confusing for students. thanks for being willing to point it out!
    Regards,
    A'isha

    Complimenting or correcting students is a difficult thing. I always make sure that each single student gets compliments (genuine ones, there is always something you can find they are good at) even if they are students with not much talent at all*. However these ones know themselves they are not able to do much right and often don't want to accept a compliment. Then I feel so sad for them, because I really try to make them feel they are good at something.
    If you try to correct them carefully, it's even worse, they say: 'I can't do anything right....'

    *need to specify this because it sounds so nasty , but I mean the students who are really really unable to learn much, still, there are always things they can do

    Hi Amulya,

    I seen this happen in my class too. I also get this. When I correct them, they say they are ok with what they are doing.
