Educators who are more engaging with their students enjoy a more attentive class and better results. Russ Johnson shares his insights into creating a more engaging experience for both the Educator and the Student.
Salt Lake City, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/16/2013 -- Is it possible to take the same amount of time a teacher spends in the classroom, and increase the quality of the learning experience? Russ Johnson thinks so, and his new book entitled “Quick Student Engagement Ideas For Busy Teachers” explains exactly how he goes about doing just that. Russ has proven himself to be not only a master lecturer, but also a master wordsmith, as he is able to make a convincing argument for the value of student engagement.
“Quick Student Engagement Ideas For Busy Teachers” shares a new paradigm of thinking about how teachers can and should interact and engage their students. A student that is energized by becoming part of the lesson plan will both absorb and retain more educational material. Why is it that some students rave about some of their teachers and how much they enjoy attending class, while they fall asleep in other classes? The answer is clear, and studies support the conclusion that student engagement is the best course of action.
Russ Johnson feels that this premise should apply to any situation between Teachers, Lecturers, or Employers and their audiences. Let’s face it, the goal is to educate the listener, no matter what the venue is, and if their attention is “grabbed”, and they feel that they are part of the story, a better outcome will be achieved. This often means re-educating the educator. “Quick Student Engagement Ideas For Busy Teachers” is going to change the teacher/student dynamic. The book gives solid ideas and tips about waking up the students minds, and shares 100's of activities, ideas and principles for improved student engagement.
“Quick Student Engagement Ideas For Busy Teachers” is the result of extensive research, which includes the results of a survey of 1000 faculty and students based on creative learning activities, techniques and principles. Russ Johnson is the CEO of TeacherTrainer.com, and specializes in Teacher Training, Corporate Training, Faculty Development, Teacher In Service, and keynote speeches for associations, conferences and meetings. A large part of his teaching approach is that if the students can’t be kept interested and engaged, then nothing else that is done really matters. He has the ability to “teach the teacher”, and show them the value of being more “entertaining”, as opposed to “boring”.
Russ Johnson offers a critically acclaimed one-day training program for the corporate environment. His inspirational and instructional training program will provide new concepts, approaches and techniques for getting the job done. A large part of what a sales force does is to “educate” the prospect, and the same principles apply. Is it better to have the prospect engaged, or ready for a snooze? An organization that invests in its people, will enjoy an increased productivity, be it amongst the sales force, or any department that deals with people.
Whether it is at one of Russ Johnson’s Boot Camps, or one of his one-day seminars, it is an eye opening event. This is what Eric Brown, Dean of ITT Technical Institute in Michigan had to say: “Russ Johnson’s presentation to our faculty regarding classroom strategies was informative, interesting and motivating. He provided real examples of student focused classroom activities and helped to re-energize the faculty for the new term!”
