I agree with the other replies on this such as we don't know his response to negative criticism but it could also be that she wants him to realize it's wrong. I don't think this is the final draft of the story and he might notice as he continues to elaborate, that certain phrases he previously wrote sound wrong and fix it himself.

    In the Eric video, why did the teacher praise Eric for putting together sentences that do not make any sort of sense? He seemed capable of compiling sentences that were readable, but sometimes he did ... more

      Cool idea: I get what you are saying. I think that is is always important to praise effort despite the result; but when the potential is there we cannot just settle for any result, we need to push... more

        The video you watched of Eric is a 3rd grader receiving for the first time in his life good writing instruction. Watch the video again and listen to my explanations. Watch the lectures on teaching... more

          I had not heard the term "micro-teach" or thought about "mini-lessons" before this class. But it makes perfect sense, especially with children who need that extra assistance. I would think that using ... more
