In an effective classroom students should not only know what they are doing, they should also know why and how.

— Harry Wong

The most competitive Harry Wong quotes that will activate your inner potential

The single greatest effect on student achievement is not race, it is not poverty - it is the effectiveness of the teacher.


It is the teacher - what the teacher knows and can do - that is the most significant factor in student achievement.


The most important day of a person's education is the first day of school, not Graduation Day.


Half of what you will accomplish in a day will be determined before you leave home. Three quarters of what you achieve will be determined before you enter the classroom door


A well-managed classroom is a task-oriented and predictable environment.


The most successful classes are those where the teacher has a clear idea of what is expected from the students and the students know what the teacher expects from them.


One of the greatest gifts a caring teacher can contribute to children is to help them learn to sit when they feel like running, to raise their hand when they feel like talking, to be polite to their neighbor, to stand in line without pushing, and to do their homework when they feel like playing. By introducing procedures in the classroom, you are also introducing procedures as a way of living a happy and successful life.


The number one problem in the classroom is not discipline;

it is the lack of procedures and routines.
