Watch this video! It is amazing! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhvaDFwmfBY&feature=related

An 11-year-old girl teaching her classmates and leading the classroom discussion. I understand it is a special method developed in the USA. Have you heard of it before?

Everything is Possible in this modern world but this world is just making and producing copies and not the intellectuals.  Thanks indeed.

Oh, thank you, Victoria! So you are already using this method!

Can you tell us a bit more about the results? What exactly has changed since you started using it? How do kids respond to it? Isn �t it a bit like pre-programming them?

This is really amazing! I �ve just watched a few films about power teaching. I think it �s great for small children but I would �t use it in highschool. My Ss would think I went crazy. I wonder if it can be used for teaching English?

There �s something Svengali-esque about this. The almost Pavlovian handclapping technique is quite sinister - like line-dancing without the fun. It seems to be less about the kids and (you can hear him in the background) more about the �facilitator �.

Victoria, the first link you provided in the previous thread about the topic isn �t working for me. Can you help me access the site?

Hi everyone,
I am a Polish native who teaches English (ESL) to children in the USA. I have just found this website and am grateful for many of your contributions. Thank you for creating this wonderful community of helpers. I will visit daily.
