During the lessons with the volunteer teachers we settled into an easy routine where both of us would teach a section depending on what the section was and how hard it was to set up. I am still more skillful at getting the students to do what I want using the least amount of words possible, and it is far easier to show by example in some cases than it is to explain; especially when our young trainee learns by doing. He is able to watch and then mimic to great success. In the week that we spent implementing this new system, we saw great results. I really feel as though this is the best way to conduct teacher training and am hopeful that we will continue to hone our techniques and improve the results inside our classroom!
