Hi Brad, I was one of the lucky teachers who listened to your extremely cogent and systematic presentation in Sacramento. In teacher terms, you engaged the students, used scaffolding to support understanding, gave explicit direct instruction and specific assignments and finished with materials to fulfill the goals of the lesson. You’re a natural!

Hi Brad – I attended your workshop with the Sacramento CTE Conference a couple of weeks ago. I absolutely loved your presentation – so, so, so great.
