Strategy of the Week: Setting High Academic Expectations
Technique 2: Right is Right
Right is Right is about the difference between partially right and all-the-way right. Between pretty good and 100%. When you sign off and tell a student she is right, she must not be betrayed into thinking she can do something she cannot.
When answers are almost correct, it's important to tell students that they are almost there, that you like what they have done so far, that they are closing in on the right answer, that they have done some good work or made a great start. You can repeat a student's answer back to them so he can listen for what's missing and further correct. Or you can encourage, prod or cajole in other ways until you get students all the way to a version that is right and that is rigorous. In holding out for Right, you set the expectation that the questions you ask and their answers truly matter.

We need to be taking attendance on your computer twice a day, once at 8:15 and the second one at 9:45. The 9:45 attendance is the official submission so be sure you are doing it at 9:45, even if nothing has changed from the 8:15 submission.
Please be sure you are checking your mailbox at least two times a day. Thank you for your help in getting the fliers in the students binders. Please don't leave them out for students to pick up but be sure that everyone has one to take home.
Be sure you are traveling with your students in the hallways at all times. Your presence alone will reinforce the CHAMPS behavior that we expect of all students.
