Comments About This Course
‘Thank you so much for all the lessons and the added extras. I am enjoying the straight-forward, step-by-step lessons. The timing is perfect as I shall use some/all of these ideas and stories in my lessons this term, after the students have taken their exams next week.’
‘As a teaching artist I am always looking for fresh ideas to complement my interactions with the children. I felt this course reviewed some of what I already do, and then added to my ideas by new ways to use former activities.’
‘Thank you for the amazing course. I felt very supported throughout. I loved seeing the activities in action! I have also received the drama books today and can’t wait to read them.’
‘I adore the fact that each one of the techniques you suggest is chosen carefully for its importance and special meaning. This gives a boost of confidence to the teacher and a feeling of quality and respect to the whole class. Thank you David for transmitting your valuable experience in such an explicit way!’
‘I’m only halfway through this course but I wanted to say how well received Freeze Frames and Thought Tracking have been. So much so that the youngest group have specifically asked to do it again next week. You have taken a whole load of stress out of starting teaching.’
‘Actually I was really impressed from the first video I watched. Your course is really amazing for us! I’m the vice principal and will advise many other teachers to take this course.’
