Harry K. Wong Publications
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Packed with practical and inspiring advice from acclaimed educator, author, and speaker Harry K. Wong, this classic video presentation outlines how to become an effective leader and professional educator. Dr. Wong emphasizes that each and every teacher has the ability to be effective. The key is perseverance and the belief that every student has the ability to learn. Effective teachers employ many strategies to be successful, such as positive expectations, academic learning time, prescriptive learning, cooperative learning, criteria-referenced testing, and procedures and routines. Effective teaching strategies work best when implemented by an entire staff that supports one another. Research shows that in effective schools the staff works together to identify problems and solutions. Successful schools have a shared vision, a shared culture, and a shared set of values, resulting in a consistent learning environment for the students?
