Teacher Expectations and Student Achievement (TESA)

Videos from two experienced teachers in Half Moon Bay CA

Several years ago, Elliot-Cortes and Fox co-wrote a small handbook containing classroom tips for inexperienced teachers to better support all students, including English-language learners and students who struggle in the classroom. Now they’ve developed a TV show that guides viewers through each of their 15 student-teacher interactions.
