Teach Like a Pirate

Workshop: Thursday, September 26 ; 11 AM–12 PM
Facilitators:  Brooke Moore and Andrew Peterson

To celebrate “Talk Like a Pirate Day” (September 19th), we thought we would entertain the notion of teaching like a pirate, based on the Dave Burgess book, Teach Like a Pirate (2013). 

Burgess says “Like pirating, teaching is an adventure full of challenges and excitement.  The way you approach your adventure can mean the difference between being shipwrecked on Burnout Island or finding buried treasure.”

Learn how to create engaging lessons that incorporate hooks  (the kinesthetic hook, the swimming with the sharks hook, the taboo hook) and capture your students’ interest.
