Product reviews for Butterflies and Sweaty Palms

Teach Secondary, Issue 2, June 2012
If there's one thing that every teacher knows, it's how to address an audience - so a book filled with advice for overcoming nerves and maximising effectiveness when speaking in public is probably the last thing that a professional educator needs, right? Wrong - of course. Even the most experienced pedagogue can experience moments of insecurity and discomfort in the classroom (not to mention disruption and disengagement); and so this handy and accessible package of practical tips on everything from capturing the attention of a group caught in the post-lunch energy slump, to dealing with heckling without losing control of the floor is certainly one to consider adding to your shelves. It's easy to read, with plenty of anecdotes and inspiring quotes - but these support solid strategies that can certainly be practised and put into action in the classroom.
