TLC Strategy #4: Mirror Class Member Behavior
Each Sunday this summer I will be posting a discussion-based teaching strategy that can be used at church (such as in LDS teacher councils) or school. Hope a few readers find these helpful! Read earlier strategies by clicking on the linked label at the end of this post.
Strategy #4: Mirror Class Member Behavior
A powerful method to build rapport is to match and mirror the behavior of those in the group. This includes a variety of behaviors, such as tone of voice, facial expressions, formality of body posture, and eye contact. By assuming the behaviors and attitudes of those being taught, discussion leaders show they are listening and present. On a psychological level the class members feel a sense of acceptance and recognition. #teachleadcollaborate
