|Evidence underpinning this approach||
This book draws on research into rapport undertaken during the development of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). Proven NLP techniques are suggested to help establish and develop teachers’ classroom presence. The author also uses the findings of leading voice and acting coach Patsy Rodenburg, the research of American social psychologist Amy Cuddy and the work of theatre director Keith Johnstone to explain and demonstrate the concepts of presence and persona. The author links teaching and acting by combining his extensive classroom experience and his knowledge of the theatre world to guide educators towards creating a teaching persona that will encourage and motivate their students.
|How users/participants can evaluate success||
The Pocketbook includes advice on developing classroom presence and assessing how pupils are responding to it. It advocates recording and evaluating student rapport and provides quantitative and qualitative questions to support reflection and evaluation.
