Becoming a great presenter and having a powerful presence can be as simple as imitating certain behaviors. Notice what great speakers do, and channel them when you are in front of the classroom. Eventually, these behaviors become automatic.
- Observe a familiar speaker who embodies all of the characteristics we strive for when attempting to emulate power
- Practice using these techniques, self-evaluate, and implement feedback
- Record a video of yourself teaching a whole-class lesson and compare your behavior to the video observed here. Also, note your “tells," or the way you physically respond when you are nervous, that might unintentionally show submission.
