A reminder to all educators and math teachers.  Comment on how this applies to you.

 If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders.

Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless seas.

    Antoine de Saint-Exupery

An idea from the new workshop of Bob Bishop
Neuro-magical Motivation in the Classroom.
        How do you make “magic” happen in the classroom? What if you could motivate hearts to yearn and minds to learn? What if you could produce engaging learning moments that would build lasting intrinsic motivation in your students? In this workshop Bob Bishop (Idaho’s Math Magician and award winning teacher) will take you on an exciting adventure of state-of-the-art brain research-based strategies that will arouse curiosity, enhance understanding, engage reluctant learners and stimulate under-achievers. Using recent discoveries in neuroscience with how magicians think and perform magic, Bob will teach you the “magic wonder words” and the engaging activities that will make magic happen in your classroom!
Next presentation is at Edufest in Boise State University    see www.edufest.org for details
