The University of Idaho has decided to change the way it labels words students write in the classroom.
In a new policy released Wednesday, the school said it will change how it labels the words students use to communicate to teachers, which includes phrases such as “thank you” and “I love you.”
The new policy states that students will now use the phrase “Thank you for doing the work you love and for being here for us, which is our job.”
The change is expected to result in more words being written in the language class, which was already the most used method of communication.
In its 2016 report, the U.I. said students’ words are the most common way they communicate with teachers.
But for decades, the word “thankyou” has been the most commonly used word for teachers in English class, according to the report.
In an email, the Idaho school district said it is trying to address this.
“In order to help teachers understand how students use words, we have begun to label some words with a more specific meaning,” the email said.
The new label will be used for “thankyous,” for example.
The change also means that students now will be able to write their own responses to a teacher’s question, the email added.
“Our goal is to provide a learning environment that is supportive and engaging,” the district said in a statement.
“We also want to encourage students to think outside of the box and to use language that helps them better understand other students and teachers.”
