Richard Van Camp's, The Lesser Blessed, contains elements that classify the novel with both Indigenous and Modern genres. Featuring both genres in a text can lead to contradicting themes that form a binary. This binary has the potential to limit the extent readers can connect to the story, suggesting the presence of a barrier. Barriers hinder the readers' lack of understanding or relatability to either Indigenous or Modern works of literature. This paper will serve to analyze how Richard Van Camp deconstructs the binary by having the sides work together rather than against one another. Furthermore, this paper will discuss how by breaking down the binary, Richard Van Camp is allowing his novel to be accessible to all readers.
The differences between effective praise and ineffective praise is that effective praise should be given in response to specific behavior whereas, ineffective praise is random or unsystematically. Effective praise “promotes on task behavior, is “helping students to persist when faced with difficulty, and “working better together as a group” (TCH, 2016).
❖ Don’t forget to use praise when a pupil’s action is appropriate. Use praise and any negative language carefully at the right place and time.

After reading the email you sent us tonight, I’ve decided to write you this email. With what’s happening in our country right now, I just feel the need to let you know that I really appreciate you reaching out to us as well as sharing your thoughts and feelings. I have to say that it is very hard not to feel hopeless at the outcome of this election. However, I realized that no matter what, the strength and unity of those who are likeminded in loving, caring and open-minded will allow us to go through this together as a country. No matter what we can find our way back to humanity, and fight to protect the immigrants, LGBT, people of color, and the female communities. Personally, I’m still trying to make sense of it. I can’t wait for the in-class
Greetings Dr. Davenport, Per your question, ‘give me a couple of examples of how this could be done in a church?’ One example and instance, when I served as Youth Pastor in Virginia. When I took over, the youth ministry did not exist. There was a youth choir and youth came together on occasions to do various events, but no viable youth ministry. After much prayer and the Pastors’ agreement, I set up a flow chart and during a church meeting, asked each department for assistance to help bring the youth together under one umbrella.
