Expectations: Explicit Teaching of Effective Effort Strategies: High School Japanese

Mr. VanKrey explicitly teaches his high school Japanese language students specific strategies to make their study time more productive.

We also see Mr. VanKrey's tenacity in pushing his students to not give up and to take advantage of extra supports.
