Practicing skills video

This pair of videos (8 min and 10 min) and accompanying text illustrate various strategies for providing mental skills practice that is brief, interesting, useful, and effective. They include examples of teachers working with their students in group settings as well as narrative elaboration by Paul Goldenburg. Two related articles (Practice and Fact of the day) are cataloged separately.
