Body Language For Teachers



A team consisting of a physicist, chemist, geologist, and anthropologist is conducting research in the fi eld. Suddenly, it starts raining, and they take shelter in a nearby house. The homeowner leaves the room to offer something to the guests. The attention of the team turns to the stove in the room. They notice that the stove is one meter above the ground, resting on stacked stones underneath. They begin to discuss why the stove is set up this way, each proposing complex theories. Shortly after, the homeowner returns to the room, and they ask him why the stove is elevated. The man helplessly gestures with his hands open, replying, “We didn’t have enough pipes…” Sometimes truths are like this: simple, clear, and evident. However, over time, when a wall of theories is built between us and the truth, we lose the correct perspective. It’s like not being able to see the forest for the trees… We bring our knowledge, experience, and bodies to the classroom. While the fi rst two may not be immediately apparent, our bodies are always there. The book shows the ways to use our bodies correctly, notice our possible mistakes, and understand the messages conveyed by the bodies of those around us, which are more functional than smart boards, projectors, and visuals. It aims to focus on the living, evident, and meaningful rather than long, practical theories trapped in books. In simpler terms, it draws attention to “insuffi cient pipes” without burdening you.
