What do High-Leverage Practices (HLPs) look like in practice? The HLP Video Series can support teacher educators and new teachers with concrete, easy-to-access examples of HLPs in action, in real classrooms, with real students. The videos and supporting resources are easily and freely accessible online, offering a practical, real-world illustration of HLPs by teachers intentionally and explicitly using the practice to meet the specific needs of students in their classrooms. HLP videos highlight research-based practices that are captured in settings that resonate with diverse contexts, subject areas, grade-levels, and student needs. Moreover, the videos demonstrate practices across levels of intensity.
