Goal 29: Present Your Ideas #30Goals

Goal 29 of The 30 Goals Challenge 2011

“According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.” ~ Jerry Seinfeld

“A person can have the greatest idea in the world. But if that person can’t convince enough other people, it doesn’t matter”~ Gregory Berns

  1. Shally–After 20 years working with classroom methods, I had an epiphany–that children are motivated instantly by conditions around them–and how this best occurs. That was 19 years ago, during which I’ve developed a simple approach by which I believe any classroom can be turned around in a couple weeks. If you or anyone are interested, I’ll send two books (ebook form)that I’ve written (contact jjensen@gci.net). One is The Silver Bullet Easy Learning System: How to Change Classrooms Fast and Energize Students for Success, and the other is Practice Makes Perfect: How to Rescue Education One Classroom at a Time. They explain (and show clearly how to correct) the basic flaw that has all US education struggling still since it was imposed by Progressive Education a century ago. Best regards, John Jensen, Ph.D.
