Speaking of Duh Studies . . .

Dave Munger over at Cognitive Daily posted a nice little description last week about how damaging generic praise can be. The effective difference betweeen "You are a good drawer" and "You did a good job drawing" is astonishing. Well worth a look for anyone working with kids. (And I suspect the concept may apply to us older types, too.)
