Kohn relates to Delpit because of the direct style that Deplit talks about. Kohn states that teachers should not say good job to their students because it is very direct and it will lead them to think that they always need this support in order to do a god job on their work. Also if parents are saying good job after everything their children is doing at home, they will expect it at school but teachers can not give in and do this. Delpit says that they students might not learn certain rules at home but learn them in the classroom, I feel as though saying good job and similar terms at home relates to Kohn.
