ABOUT MISSION 100%

Mission 100% is an online video library and platform, with over 1,200 short, targeted observation clips from real classrooms that highlight best teaching practices. We believe that practice based teacher development is the most efficient and effective way to develop great teachers, but relies on clear exemplars to calibrate the bar high, and provide teachers with clear desired outcomes.


We also love partnering with schools and networks to begin building their own libraries. Please contact us for more information!

What Do We Do

Film Incredible Teachers & Schools.

We define ‘incredible’ by the results teachers get from their students. Consistently. We are then able to analyze actions and mindsets that lead to these results.


We find and capture these teachers by partnering with schools, networks and districts who are eager to codify best practices internally.

Highlight Strategies & Best Practices.

Next we take all this raw footage and spend days and weeks watching, analyzing and editing it down into short (1-3 minute) video clips.


When partnering with schools and networks this saves them a lot of hard work, while also allowing us to build a diverse library of teachers from across the country.

Replicate Awesome.

Clips are then organized and tagged on our platform, built for easy communication, collaboration, and organization. We believe this is a crucial part of using video in teaching training, making it easy to implement into current coaching practices.

Framework For 100%

Our Framework is how we communicate around the best practices we see both in classrooms and in our footage. We did not create many of these terms, as brilliant educators have been collectively developing this language for many years. We also recognize that many schools and networks have developed their own frameworks, which can be used on Mission 100% to tag and organize any videos uploaded within your network.


You can find a full Framework for browsing inside the Mission 100% library. Check it out.

Color Systems & Behavior Management

Feb 1, 2016

Janice Smith

One of my former students is getting ready to graduate college this year and is in the process of applying for teaching positions.  This, alongside her student teaching experience, has led to some great conversations about teaching and classrooms over the past couple years, and most recently the topic of 'color charts' came up as a method of behavior management. What I told her most recently was that I actually think the actual behavior management system is the smallest part of the equation, though this is what we spend lots of time talking about.  In all the lower elementary classrooms

We couldn't be more excited to announce the addition of another batch of videos from Henderson Collegiate this morning.  Head to the library to see some of the newest footage, and stay tuned for their high school footage that will be coming in the next week.

Working Up Bloom's

Jan 18, 2016

Janice Smith

When we think more critically about strategic questioning, and how we use this to facilitate higher level thinking in our classrooms, it's impossible to avoid referencing Bloom's Taxonomy.  I've visited some classrooms where teachers have a poster of the different levels on the back wall of their classroom, keeping it top of mind as they're teaching.  While this is certainly helpful in the moment, I would argue some of the best teachers I've seen at strong questioning have explicitly planned their questioning ahead of time and it is an important part of their lesson plan.  When I was working with
