Begin your analysis by offering a brief description of the case (no more than 5 sentences).




  1. What are you thinking and feeling in reaction to the video?

  2. What was the teacher trying to accomplish? What did the teacher do to achieve it? What was the outcome?

  3. Now, put yourself in the student's position and offer a response to the following:

    • In what ways did you connect people and content?

    • How has this situation impacted your sense of control over the learning environment?

    • In what ways do you see yourself as competent individual, as a result, of this situation? (emotion, behavior, academic competence)

  4. If appropriate, what classroom management strategies, if used, might have deescalated or prevented this situation?

  5. What would your goals be for this student/class during the next month?




As you view each video segment, highlight how the teacher: (a) Promotes learner-engagement; (b) Attends to developing students' knowledge; (c) Utilizes assessment tasks for/of learning; and (d) Promotes community-building within the classroom, school and children's lived experiences.




Discuss the level of performance, essential knowledge and critical dispositions demonstrated by the teacher for one or more of the linked standards. Offer evidence from the clip to support your answer. If appropriate, discuss the video clips connections to Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). Do this by identifying the segment that portrays Acknowledgment/Reinforcements, Pre-corrects and/or Expectations/Procedures. Then respond to the following three questions:

  1. What resulted or could result because of this intervention?

  2. What unexpected outcomes might occur? How would you respond?

  3. What do you suggest for the next step in working with this class/student?
