Communicating High Expectations - Behavior

What is the "Communicating High Expectations" instructional strategy?

With "Communicating High Expectations", the teacher clearly communicates to students with regard to what they will be expected to do during a particular activity, providing a positive statement about their ability to perform at that level.  This both helps the students to be aware of the expectations and to have confidence in their ability.
