Ms. Greyson realizes that high performance in a subject leads to a high self-concept in that area and also promotes positive overall self-concept. She also realizes that students gauge their judgments of themselves on the basis of the verbal and nonverbal reactions of significant people such as teachers.
•   Ms. Greyson's positive relationships with her students help her students build positive concepts. She treats them with respect and speaks politely to them. These behaviors are likely to help students respect themselves and feel worthy of courteous treatment.
•   Ms. Greyson's interactive teaching and encouraging all students to participate most likely show students that she wants them to learn and believes they are capable of contributing to the class.
•   Her use of group work provides opportunities for building positive self-concepts. Students are more likely to speak up in small groups and demonstrate prosocial behaviors that lead to higher self-concepts. They are cooperating rather than competing. They are less likely to feel that their individual efforts are being judged in comparison to efforts of others in the class.
•   Ms. Greyson's use of portfolios is an effective strategy for helping students see their progress over time and feel good about their learning. This approach helps them develop a positive self-concept about writing.
