Making Body Language Your Superpower - an instructional video on using body language effectively. Presented by Stanford graduate students Matt Levy, Colin Bailie, Jeong Joon Ha, and Jennifer Rosenfeld. Created as an exemplary final project in Lecturer JD Schramm's Strategic Communication course in March 2014. Body language - both the speaker's and the audience's - is a powerful form of communication that is difficult to master, especially if the speaker is nervous. This video will teach you how to use your body language effectively, even if you are nervous. This video will also show you how to read the audience's body language and what you should do when they look bored or disconnected from the presentation. Use these tools to enhance your nonverbal communication abilities and better conne...
Singapore is one of the highest-achieving school systems in the world yet teachers have relatively fewer instructional hours compared to teachers in the U.S. As a senior teacher at Kranji Secondary School in Singapore, Rosmiliah's typical work week involves only 12–14 hours of academic teaching. This film follows a day in the life of Rosmiliah and provides intriguing insight into how teacher time is managed in Singapore. "Time for Learning: A Day in the Life of a Singaporean Teacher," is a product of the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education (SCOPE) study, “Comparative Study of Time Use in Schools.” Sponsored by the Ford Foundation, the study examines policies and practices related to teacher quality used by high-achieving jurisdictions.

Stanford University reduces student loans for graduates who teach in underserved communities. The new Dorothy Durfee Avery Loan Forgiveness Program at Stanford's School of Education offers to ease the burden for any eligible graduate of the STEP Program who teaches in a public school or a private school in an underserved community. The program was established by a gift from Judy Avery, '59, and named in honor of her mother, who was a teacher. Her gift will be matched by the university, bringing the program fund to $20 million.
