Anita Archer - Active Participation Instruction - 2nd Grade

This video shows Anita Archer sharing direct, explicit instruction on how to "be my students." She models her answering procedure - when the teacher's hands are up it is time to think of the answer without blurting out. When the teacher lowers her hands, everyone says the answer together. She practices this technique with students several times and makes corrections when necessary as she offers lots of positive reinforcement. She also introduces working procedures for working with a partner.
