TEACHING TAI CHI EFFECTIVELY
- Ficha técnica
This book was written to help both you and your participants enjoy and develop your tai chi more fully. By teaching effectively, your participants will learn more easily and quickly and, thus, enjoy their tai chi more; this, in turn, will keep them coming back to your class. At the same time, you will be more fulfilled as a teacher and will improve your own level of tai chi. The core of the book is the teaching system I have developed from years of research and experience. I call it the Stepwise Progressive Teaching Method. Within this book, I have woven this method together with essential knowledge in teaching tai chi for health improvement, and present it step-by-step, as a complete system of teaching. Those of you who have read the first edition of Teaching Tai Chi Effectively have told me how invaluable you found it-often reading it numerous times to learn my teaching methodology or keeping it as a handy reference tool. This revised edition has been expanded to address new research on teaching tai chi for health as well as different approaches that can be used with the development of new teaching aids, like DVDs and the World Wide Web. Throughout the book, I will use real life examples to help you take a better course of action, as well as avoid obvious pitfalls. While the stories are real, the names have been changed to protect privacy, except for quotes, in which case, real names are used. Many of you have requested I cover areas in which you need more assistance such as: retaining participants, creating marketing strategies, working with people with chronic conditions, and teaching in the workplace. This edition has been reorganized and enhanced to fill these requests. Here's what you will find in this edition: Part 1 is all about you, the teacher. Chapter 1 answers the question ?why teach tai chi?? Chapter 2 discusses the basic attributes of an effective teacher.
