This assignment centers on four videotapes of one-on-one lessons conducted by two fifth-grade teachers with one student. One teacher had this student for three sessions, the second teacher had this student for one session.Each video is approximately 30 minutes in length. I encourage you to view them with at least one other person, if possible. You will need a high-speed connection to view the videos (on-campus access will be high-speed).
