Conclusion

Master teachers teach with style. They use


every available resource at their disposal to
communicate the message. Take the self-
assessment in the action assignment to see
how you rate yourself in the area of style.
Then decide one thing you can do the next
time to teach to improve your style.
Remember, U are in charge of your style!
