Teach Like a Champion #2 - Right is Right

First off, thanks to everyone who participated in Week #1 of Teach Like a Champion!  I know a lot of people want to participate, but were still waiting for their book and I'm sure that real life, like usual, tends to get in the way!

Need the book??

Want a Quick Primer??

Week Two



I wanted to start the post for Week #2 and introduce the strategy:  Right is Right

For Right is Right - "Students often stop striving when they hear that their answer is “right.” However, many teachers often accept answers that are partially correct or not totally complete. They affirm these answers by repeating them and then adding information to make the answer completely correct."

Your mission for these two weeks (I've found that two weeks gives everyone enough time) is to focus on getting your students to give the RIGHT answer and the complete answer.  Don't add in any extra!  As always, reading the chapter would lend important insight to the strategy ;)
