Specific Praise - Elementary School

What is the "Specific Praise" instructional strategy?

With "Specific Praise", the teacher delivers specific feedback regarding observed student success, informing the student exactly what was done correctly and praising success.  Specific praise should be faded as student success maintains.  This helps the student to discriminate correct versus incorrect responses and understand how to continue with success.

What are the "Elementary School" context videos?

The Elementary School videos focus on the application of the entire range of Primary Level strategies to students in Elementary classroom settings.  The videos represent a cross section of student abilities, instructional focus, and group sizes.

The following is a list of all of the Primary Level training videos  involving the "Specific Praise" instructional strategy within an Elementary School context that are available for viewing.
