Expectations: Persevere and Return: "Natural Resources" - Middle School Social Studies with commentary

Middle School Social Studies (Moore-KIPP Lynn, MA)     Time: 3:48

When students make mistakes or answer half correctly, the responses of teachers can either result in confidence building and success or communicate debilitating messages about student ability. Here Ms. Moore shows an important pattern, Persevere and Return, in handling these situations for positive results. She also shows tenacity in eliciting a complete answer in academic language. 

Use this clip as an opportunity for self-reflection and sharing with colleagues on opportunities you will have to try this move out in your next class.
