By talking through their thinking at each step of a process, teachers can model what learning looks like. Showing students that teachers, too, are learners who struggle and persist through challenging work also models the importance of continuous growth. Observing thought processes and expected behaviors also helps students feel supported in their learning.
Watch how a high school math teacher models using active reading strategies for problem-solving. She shows how she thinks through an equation and the questions she asks herself.
Videos are chosen as examples of strategies in action. These choices are not endorsements of the products or evidence of use of research to develop the feature.
Videos are an excellent way to provide models that students can revisit, such as this Khan Academy example on number patterns. Products can easily integrate such videos into their instructional roadmap, supporting students' deeper conceptual development.
