The Teacher Talk Advantage

Five Voices of Effective Teaching

Empower, uplift, and affirm. Motivate and inspire. Reduce power struggles and learned helplessness. Build relationship through the use of empathy, understanding, and mutual respect. Teach personal responsibility. Help students create purpose, mission, and direction in their lives. Encourage students to become proficient at self-examination and self-evaluation. Teach a curriculum built not around subjects, but rather around core concepts such as honesty, diversity, responsibility, inner-knowing, solution-seeking, and personal power. Help students make decisions and find their own solutions. Help educators learn a style of communication that helps students learn how to become successful human beings.
