BEHIND THE CURTAIN

BEHIND THE CURTAIN Fall 2019

Become a better, more effective and more successful Awareness Through Movement® teacher

RTTS (RETURNING TO THE SOURCE) was about answering the question, “What do I need to know about a lesson to teach it well?”

BEHIND THE CURTAIN (BTC) BTC picks up where RTTS left off, reinforcing and building on the insights and skills you developed in RTTS.

BTC we shift our focus from how you teach the lesson to how you teach your students rather than (just) teaching the lesson. You’ll be able to answer the next key question, “How do I teach an ATM® to enhance each student’s learning?”.

Sometimes, no matter how well you teach an Awareness Through Movement® lesson, one or more students struggle with it.

Some might even find the lesson impossible.

Or they can do the ATM® but discover that they pay a price afterward, experiencing pain or discomfort instead of any possible benefit.

Often, students find that the changes they experience during a lesson fade quickly once it’s over.

BTC offers the observational skills, conceptual models, and teaching tools you need to be able to face these challenges and transform them into “learnable moments.RTTS (RETURNING TO THE SOURCE) was about answering the question, “What do I need to know about a lesson to teach it well?”
