First Daypart 2teach To Be Happy

The catch is – you don’t need to be happy first to hit play. Simply putting on an upbeat soundtrack will get you there says the University of Missouri that found those who actively listen to happy music experience a rush of feel-good neurotransmitter dopamine to their brain’s pleasure centre. Yoga uses music to uplift constantly. The first day back is a great day to read engaging books that are a bit longer. I find that my students can sustain their attention for an amazing story for much longer that they can keep working on more independent academic work at times like this.

First Daypart 2 Teach To Be Happy Hour

  • Overview

    There is no need to wait to hear the most sought after speaker in education. A five-hour, in-service presentation has been packaged into eight small parts so that a teacher who needs help can look at certain sections or a staff developer, coach, or administrator can use each part over a period of time. Recorded in a performing arts center, this production has won numerous awards and has been honored by the Telly Awards as the best education series in the past twenty years.

    The Effective Teacher is sold as the complete series of eight discs or individually as single discs. (See the single discs page to purchase an individual disc from the series.) We have repackaged the series and single discs for less impact on the environment and have passed those savings on to you.

    Each DVD contains

    • one of each of the eight parts of the series,
    • the complete Facilitator’s Handbook with the transcript of the entire series in PDF format,
    • an expanded Facilitator’s Guide that walks the facilitator through each part and provides questions for discussion and follow-up,
    • PDF files of all the graphics used in the production,
    • PowerPoint slides of all of the graphics from the series,
    • a video file of all of the opening music and commentaries that begin each of the eight parts, and
    • closed captioning.

    The information in the presentation correlates with THE First Days of School for a coherent teacher training package. A copy of the book is included when The Effective Teacher is purchased as a series.
