An actor’s life for me

I do think being a teacher is part teaching, and part acting. Perhaps teachers should take an acting class or two during their undergrad years?

If all the classroom’s a stage, and you a mere player, perhaps this list will help you reflect on your role: choose the statements that describe you the most and see what score you get. “I usually enter my classroom with a theatrical flourish” – no, not me. “I sometimes feign anger when students don’t hand in their homework” – hmmmm.

As a counterpoint to this optimistic view of ‘teaching with passion’, there is an opinion that teacher development doesn’t focus enough on the performing aspect of teaching. Time for a video observation, maybe?
