The recommendation suggests that praising positive actions while ignoring negative actions[ ones ] be the optimal way to teach. However, this recommendation is problematic since (only receiving praise but failing to correct students’  faults) [ confusing/the two actions are initiated by two people rather than one person ] could ultimately harm the learners.

If teachers ignore[ grammatical error/subjunctive ] students’ mistakes, students will[grammatical error  ] keep[/perpetuate  ] their faults (and fail )[ adjust logical connection here .. perpetuate… fail to / they don’t happen simultaneously] to obtain correct knowledge. Learning involves exploring new things and obtaining the [article error  ] right solutions to various problems (under certain instructions)[unclear/redundant  ] .[poor coherence here  ] Students will [ change to conditional writing ] continue their false actions unless teachers point them[ unclear pronoun: students/actions ] out. For instance, in school, teachers need to review students’ homework and mark the mistakes in their[unclear pronoun  ] answers. Hence, students will learn the [ article error ] right solution when (the same problems face them)[ shift of subject ] . But if his[unclear pronoun/ you didn’t mention a person  ] fault is[ grammatical error ] ignored, the learner will [ grammatical error ] fail to[ repetition ] give the correct answer (and replicate negative actions )[ logical confusion/who? ] again when( the same problem occurs again)[confusion  ] . Thus, ignoring negative actions (makes learners keep making the same mistakes.)[you need to organize it differently.. all same sentence structure  ]

Moreover, (only praises and ignorance of negative actions )[ repetition ] will [ absolute statement ] harm[ repetition ] the [ article error ] further development of learners. By doing this, learners will[absolute statement  ] be trapped in the illusion[ passive… be under the illusion ] that they are perfect. Even if they are doing unreasonable actions, they (assume these actions correct)[ grammatical error ] . [ coherence issue ] Appropriate statements of mistakes can help learners develop habits[ word form error ] of critical thinking. When Obama educates his daughter Malia, he occasionally( points out some faults and helps her)[ change the logical order of the two verbs ] form a better personality. If an instructor always ignoring[grammatical error  ] the learner’s faults, the learner cannot [grammatical error  ] actively judge his actions and hamper his development. Hence, critics are essential considering the overall development of learners.

Despite these[ unclear pronoun ] , praises on positive actions from instructors are also essential[vague word  ] . (By doing this)[ confusion ] , students can become more confident and be encouraged[passive  ] to continue their positive behaviors. Mary Curry and her husband always praised each other and admired the other’s contributions to science. It was their (confidence and willingness to)[preposition issue  ] continue science work that led them to great success. Therefore, instructors should not only point out learners’ faults moderately[unclear adverb  ] but also continue to praise students’ positive actions.

In a nutshell, the best way to teach is not paying too much attention to praises and choosing to ignore those faults. Doing so [ unclear ] will neither correct students’ current mistakes (nor have positive impacts)[structural problem  ] on their further development. Instead, (combining moderate praises for good performance and appropriate)[structural problem  ] statements of negative actions is the best way. Such teaching methods can help learners achieve success currently or in the future.
