Series II - Step 7 - Success Bank Accounts
Classroom Practices for Building Confidence
Adapted from the book, Creating Confident Children in the Classroom: The Use of Positive Restructuring.
Pierangelo/Giuliani: Research Press
A major factor in creating confidence is allowing repeated successful experiences. Positive Restructuring assumes that tangible successful experiences are crucial in the development of confidence. Further the use of verbal praise or encouragement alone will never be enough to fully develop a sense of confidence. In order to have children realize how successful they have been we suggest you develop Success Bank Accounts for each child.
This issue of the Classroom Management Series II, provides information on how to set up and use a "Sucess Bank" to help your students to build confidence in the classroom.
