The Warm Demander: An Equity Approach

From Edutopia

“Warm demander” teachers expect great things from their students, convince them of their own brilliance, and help them reach their potential in a disciplined, structured environment.

Recently, I was talking with a high school student about his frustrations with a first-year teacher. The student said, “I like [the teacher] because he’s understanding, but he doesn’t require enough discipline. He tells us to stop talking, but he doesn’t really do anything to stop it. If I say, ‘I forgot my homework,’ he extends the deadline, and he keeps extending it, so I don’t bother doing it. He needs to be more strict!”
