Harry K. Wong Publications
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Presented with warmth, humor, and candor by acclaimed educator, author, and speaker Harry K. Wong, this classic video lecture focuses on how to increase positive student behavior. Dr. Wong discusses how effective teachers have positive expectations of their students. They increase student achievement and positive student behavior by continually sharing their expectations with their students and designing their lessons for success. Their students work hard and are praised often for their achievements. Students in Dr. Wong's class know what is expected of them; they know he expects cooperation, courtesy, and for them to strive to be the best person possible. They know they are expected to earn their grades and they know they will have to work for them. They know that Dr. Wong wants them to succeed and that he believes in them. They know this because he tells them and reminds them with signs posted on the classroom walls.
