I just want to apologize to any of my students who might feel offended at this next video. I didn't have any students with my while I was filming, so I had to use some of my son's stuffed animals to fill in for a real student. And I used a stuffed horse, a stuffed elephant, and a stuffed monkey to, kind of, represent the head of the beast, as it were. But please, don't take any offense. It's just to show you, and to illustrate the situation that I'm talking about, okay? Thanks a lot! I appreciate you not being too angry with me.
So, here's the TIP. You have your iPad or you have your piece of paper, or whatever. If you're sitting side-by-side like this, and you start writing something on a piece of paper, your hand is blocking the paper. And the student, they can't see anything. Sometimes the students may get a little frustrated...And that's not cool. You don't want to frustrate your student, in any situation. So, what can you do? Let's change the placement. First of all you sit across from the student. The student sits on the other side of the table, or kind of kind of catty-corner to right here. And you write upside down. It may sound kind of crazy, but when you get the hang of it, it's really pretty cool, and it's effective. It may take some time developing and training, but once you've got it, it's a nifty little trick.
