powerful teaching techniques

Have you ever wanted to learn powerful teaching techniques… for free?

You can, and all it takes is a little bit of internet surfing, specifically on Amazon.

Here’s a big secret… Authors unknowingly hide some of their best stuff right in the table of contents. You can look at the table of contents of most books on Amazon, free of charge.

I demonstrate how in this podcast/video. It’s easy. In literally a few minutes, you can often find just the gem you are looking for that will ignite your teaching.

If you want to hear the podcast, just click on the player and listen (or listen on Stitcher or iTunes).

If you want to watch the podcast on youTube go to bit.ly/boredomtoc. In the video, I show you exactly how you can use the technique for free on Amazon.

Here’s how mining the table of contents for powerful teaching techniques works…

Go to Amazon (can you actually go there?). And pull up a book about teaching techniques that you would like to read. You can even search something like “student engagement” or “classroom management.” And then click on one of the top books in the list.

Next, pull up the table of contents. Read it.

Then, grab a piece of paper or note cards and write down ideas that you get just from reading the contents…

It’s that easy.

I’ll be honest, it doesn’t work as well for every book. But you’ll figure that out in just a few minutes.

In the above podcast/video, you can see exactly how I do this with the Bryan Harris book entitled Battling Boredom.

Try it out, and tell me what you think.

Another great way to battle boredom is to use Brain Breaks.
