A LYS Principal asks the following:


When a teacher is administering a test during the day’s class, what would you suggest the Lesson Frame (We will… / I will…) look like?

Thanks for your help.

SC Response If the teacher posts a test day Lesson Frame (which is optional, but recommended) we suggest that she use the frame to motivate and set a goal. For example:

We will use our enormous brains to easily solve a myriad of Algebra problems.

I will score at least an 85 on the Algebra test.

This allows the teacher to leverage the power of positive messaging and expectations.  And it can be fun.  A classroom Win/Win!

Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
