This resource suggests practical techniques teachers can use to maximize the impact they have on students and influence students positively both in the classroom and in their lives. Ideas are drawn from the author's experiences as a high school and college teacher, a corporate trainer, and an outdoor education facilitator, and from recent research in how people receive, process, and recall information. Many of the techniques rely on changes in language patterns used to communicate with students. Every concept and technique is explained through many simple examples.
