www.WhatYourBodySays.com Intro: - How to I get, and keep, my students’ attention? - Why do my students look at me like I’m speaking a different language? - Didn’t I make myself clear? - Is there a more effective and productive way to teach? If any of these questions sound familiar to you, you’re in luck. We have a very special guest with us today who is going to help us teachers to learn how to make our body’s message match the message that our mouth is sending out. I’m talking about nonverbal communication. Knowing what message your body is conveying. Joining me on the phone now is Sharon Sayler, a Body Communication expert, and the author of 'What Your Body Says (and how to master the message)' Welcome Sharon… Sample Questions: 1. I never really thought about how nonverbal communication is used in the classroom… What are the benefits of understanding nonverbal communication in the classroom? 2. You book is titled What Your Body Says (and how to master the message). How might this concept of your body matching what your mouth is saying relate to the classroom setting? 3. This is more than body language, what are some different types of nonverbal communication that can be used in the classroom? 4. With 4 distinct learning styles, does nonverbal communication work for ALL students? 5. It’s been said,“it’s not what you say, but how you say it…” How might this concept apply to using nonverbals in the classroom? 6. The student-teacher relationship is so unique. What are some nonverbal techniques to maintain that relationship of trust, safety and authority? 7. Teaching, though a great privilege and blessing to many, can be very tiring. Do you have any tricks for maintaining more efficient time and energy use in the classroom? 8. What are some nonverbal signals that a teacher should avoid using in their classroom? Our guest today is a Body Communication expert. Her book "What Your Body Says (and how to master the message)" is on Sharon’s website and online.
