Video Exemplar Samples

Each clip in this collection shows examples of effective interactions as defined by the CLASS measure. Research shows that teachers who watch classroom videos in our Video Library make greater gains in their interactions with children. By using the Video Library, teachers and care providers build an internal working model of how to interact more intentionally and effectively with children. If you're interested in accessing more videos, you can learn more about the CLASS Video Library here
