3-Read Friday #22
Hypercorrection, textbooks, and praise
This newsletter is made possible because of Eedi. Check out our brand-new set of diagnostic quizzes, videos, and practice questions for every single maths topic, ready to use in the classroom, and all for free, here.
Here are three blog posts that I found interesting this week.
I am obsessed with the Hypercorrection Effect - the phenomenon where when we are both wrong and confident about something, and then get corrected through feedback, we are more likely to remember the right information. The InnerDrive team takes a deep dive into the Hypercorrection Effect, along with practical suggestions of how its power can be harnessed in the classroom.
Michael applies the thinking behind his fantastic book, Teaching Math with Examples, to the subject of textbook design. The principles Michael discusses here are relevant to anyone designing any form of learning materials, from worksheets to PowerPoints.
Ian delves into the concept of praise, sharing ten practical strategies that can make praise more effective. Whilst aimed at leaders, the ideas discussed here have relevance for all teachers, helping improve their interactions with both their colleagues and their students.
If you found this edition of 3-Read Friday useful, feel free to share it with colleagues. Also, you can check out all the back issues of my Eedi newsletter and Tips for Teachers newsletter here. But, most importantly of all, have a great weekend.
