Set High Expectations
Did You Know?
Raise expectations… Students and employees will improve their game in response to a challenge. In the classroom or the workplace, setting high expectations leads to greater achievement. In fact, expecting students to perform well becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Be sure your students know what it takes to succeed in your class and identify behaviors that lead to good grades. Setting high expectations with energy, enthusiasm and conviction will inspire your students to make that extra effort in your class.
