My son-in-law, recently retired professional wrestler Adam Firestorm comes from an interesting family. His mother is an actress and journalist, and his father an actor, playwright, author and journalist. Wrestling is just another form of acting he claims, without the stunt doubles. Is teaching another performance art?William Timpson and David Tobin seem to think so. Take a look at their book, Teaching as Performing: A Guide to Energizing Your Public Presentations ( Prentice Hall, 1982). Perhaps you should take a look and see. You may decide that you need a stunt double– or you may get energized.
Two other books that Sandra Hargreaves Luebking recommends are Madelaine Hunter, Teach More- Faster!(Corwin Press, 1995) and Michael McCarthy Mastering the Information Age: A Course in Working Smarter, Thinking Better and Learning Faster, (Jeremy P.Tarcher, 1991)
Look for more on this topic under “Teaching Genealogy“.
I’d be interested in your comments.
