Teach like a rockstar

If we are looking at the traditional methods of teaching, (contrasted with my previous post) this could be relevant from lifehack.
Presenting can be scary to many people, and for others, it comes quiet naturally, but even the best presenters have to break free from their “tried and true” methods and shake up their audience. You know who understands this very well? You know who can change up their act and get people moving? Rockstars!

Replace the word 'presenter' with 'teacher'.

The post then lists, with a brief description, the following steps
  • Make First Contact With Emotions
  • Play Favorites
  • Kick Over the Podium
  • Wave Those Lighters
  • Go Home Singing
Teacher talk for this is engagement.
