Some teachers are like pirates, sailing the seven seas in search of adventure and treasure. Their classrooms are places of intrigue and wonder, laughter and learning. Sound impossible? In his book, Teach Like a Pirate, Dave Burgess builds his case for being a teacher that is dedicated to increasing student engagement through whatever means necessary. He covers topics like increasing your passion and enthusiasm for teaching, learning to take risks, presentation skills, keeping the attention of your students, and several chapters of effective hooks to use when teaching. This book study will provide you with an opportunity to evaluate your own teaching style with fresh eyes and rekindle your passion and purpose for teaching. This course is available for 1 or 2 units.
