power teaching

I don’t know about this style of teaching. It might be a good way to teach a room full of ADD students or students who have a difficult time sitting still. Also it would be a good way to teach if you are trying to mix up the classroom. My question is what happens to students who only learn in a quiet structured environment. Also what happens to students who need a little more adult help? I don’t think I would use this in my class, but more power to the teachers who do.

I am intrigued by Power Teaching and would like to learn more. But, I could not see teaching this way all day, every day. I don't think I have the energy. But, I could see using it a bit, to get attention (not always) or to reinforce concepts, or to get students motivated. I do agree that the quiet learners may have a harder time with this. Again, I would like to learn more about it.
