Now Are Ye Ready to Set Sail?
The Keys to Teaching like a Pirate...
You don't have to love what you teach...you just have to love to teach!
Ask and Analyze
EVERYONE CAN BE CREATIVE!
"Don't ask, 'How can I make this lesson bearable for my students today and keep them awake?' Instead ask, 'How can I make this lesson outrageously entertaining, engaging, and powerful so that my students will never forget it.'" (Burgess 43)
There is no such thing as failure, only feedback.

A MASTERFUL PRESENTATION.
"Do you want to be great?"
Teach Like a PIRATE
Get to know your students and create a safe environment!
"Building rapport is all about interacting with your students as fellow human beings, not just as subordinates."
Clean them up!
If you mess up transitions, you're going to lose your class faster than if you told them to take a quick nap.
"It doesn't matter how much material you teach, it only matters how much is received" (Burgess)
Going to a BBQ
Get Students Moving!
Learn Student's Hobbies
Teach Real World Applications/Life-Changing Lessons
Use Your Interior Design Talent
Involve Your Audience
Use Your Acting Powers
Let them Choose!
Give all of yourself to the moment...students can tell if you are distracted!
Are you a lifeguard or a swimmer?
Life is too short to be small.
In order to teach, we have to expect greatness from ourselves because if we aren't motivated to achieve, how can we expect our students to be?
As teachers, we need to want to be great. Once we accept this, we can then take the steps necessary to succeed.
Answering the Awkward Question
"Everyone who got to where they are had to begin where they were."
-Richard Paul Evans
Pirate Code of Conduct
What to Avoid
The Fear of Failure
Figuring it all out before you begin
Lack of Focus
Fear of Criticism
"I not only use all the brains that I have, but all the brains that I can borrow"
Every ship needs a crew, each who brings their own skills to the table.
When teaching, collaboration is key. Working with other teachers is a great way to help develop each others strategies and ultimately to get our children where they need to be.
Collaboration =/= Killaboration
And So We Begin our Adventure...
1. Win the battle for attention
If your students didn't have to be there, would you be teaching in an empty room?
2. "Reframe" something boring into something amazing
Be on fire for what you teach!
There is nothing more contagious on this planet than enthusiasm.
