Why Teachers Should Be Trained Like Actors

Why Teachers Should Be Trained Like Actors | Education and Training | Scoop.it

“Teaching is a lot like acting, a high-energy, performance profession that requires a person to act as a role model. But when teachers go through training and professional development, the performance aspect of the job is rarely emphasized or taught. Acknowledging this aspect could be a missed opportunity to restructure ways teachers learn new skills and tactics.”

Coaching is so much more than a chat with a friend. | Education and Training | Scoop.it
Every time I hear someone say that coaching is a bogus profession, equivalent to paying someone to be your friend, I want to spit. Not very coach-like I know, but I only said I wanted to spit, not that I actually do. No one truly listens to you like a coach. A coach listens long and hard until you hear the wisdom of your own words, and believe the truth of your own responses.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 29, 9:32 AM
Groupthink is a product of a lack of trust, but it is also a cultural phenomenon. Perhaps it is so ingrained in the way things are done that it is hard to shake free. Schools abound with groupthink as people focus on managing rather than leading. It will take courageous leaders and followers to step out of those shadows.

Why Criticism Is So Tough To Swallow (And How To Make It Go Down Easier)

Why Criticism Is So Tough To Swallow (And How To Make It Go Down Easier) | Education and Training | Scoop.it
What Your Brain Does When You're Criticised

 

At any given time, brains are subconsciously scanning the world around us for dangers to defend against—ready to launch a fight, flight, or freeze response that will protect us from predators or poisons. But the brain doesn’t just guard us against physical threats. Research has found that it also goes on the defensive in response to things that threaten to undermine our social standing and safety, including interactions that make us feel even mildly rejected or incompetent.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, April 18, 11:02 PM
Criticism is so tough to swallow, apparently because our brains perceive criticism as a danger and so it gets into defensive mode! A few of the senior at the place where I work tell others to learn to accept vulnerability without being defensive. Most of the workshops conducted for employees revolve around making them feel comfortable with vulnerabilty. This, I guess is the first step towards accepting criticism without feeling threatened. Being comfortable with vulnerability depends, also to a great extent on developing  a secure environment.
