  2. Hello everyone, how can I change my teaching style from indulgent style to authoritative ? This is my 1st year as an intern and I'm new teacher at the school I'm working at the moment. The problem is that I don't know how to move from a warning to consequences. I'll be happy to read your comments. Thank you in advance.

  3. I am somewhere between authoritative and authoritarian. I'd usually assess the class's subject ability and base my teaching style on their test performance.

  4. Thanks for this video. My students (college of education) and I appreciate your clear, concise approach to the styles (and the illustrations)! We used your video as the foundation for an in class activity.

  5. I love your videos. I am going for an interview tomorrow and have been a teacher for 12 years. I want to flip my classroom with google so bad. Your videos are awesome! I love that they are not long and cut right to the chase! Keep up the good work 🙂

  6. I cannot get enough of your videos! Just watched another 3 and took notes. I am getting more information here than I did in my college classes! Thank you very much!
