Words Matter: How to Use Teacher Language to Help Students

Course 698: Words Matter: Using Teacher Language to Help Students discusses the power of our words as a means to help our students excel and achieve. Envisioning, open-ended questioning, listening, and reinforcing and reminding all combine to help educators help students.
