It's Ok to have fun when you are teaching!
You're not really having fun, you are using fun to create positive emotions to access the limbic system ( the emotional part of the brain ) to optimise dopamine ( the feel good hormone - a key learning chemical in the brain ) to facilitate autonomic learning.
For each and every activity, game or idea the author suggests what he thinks will best complement a lesson and explains in what way it will advance student's experiences.
Whatever the session, whatever the mood there's a mini rocket to suit any lesson, anytime, anywhere that will get the creative juices flowing and engage even the most reluctant of pupils.
