Smashwords book reviews by Rob Howard

  • Presentation Lesson Hacks on Sep. 06, 2015

    Presentation Lesson Hacks by Phil Wade is a necessity for anyone teaching advanced language skills and/or presentation skills. The idea of putting the book into a series of hacks is brilliant. It is concise, organized and acts as a daily routine one can easily follow in the classroom while engaging students and giving them the ability to make better quality presentations for the rest of their lives. Presentation skills are life skills that have all but disappeared from the classroom, yet Phil brings a coherent methodology and touches all the bases. Every hack is well thought out and has well planned activities to not only teach these skills, but gives contextualized meaning for the reasons each hack is important to the students. Well written indeed. rob howard - online language center
