Expectations: Giving Help with Tenacity and Making Thinking Visible: "Rodolfo" - High School Mathematics

High School Mathematics (Herrmann-Evanston, IL)     Time: 14:04

While giving extra help to Rodolfo, Mr. Herrmann sends positive expectations messages and simultaneously makes his thinking visible. The result is deep student understanding and relationship building too.

What do you think are the obstacles to doing tutoring in this way and how can you overcome them? Consider the urge to "save" students and limit their struggle. 

For more information refer to p. 266 and p. 284 of the Expectations chapter and p. 194 of the Clarity chapter of The Skillful Teacher.
