Greetings All Teachers

Greetings to all Teachers and welcome to my IntellTeacher Blog. The Blog title is shorthand for intelligent teacher as we are among the most learned and intelligent of people. I’m running under the nom de plume of Frankly Frank in order to stay off the radar of the school system, keep my school’s administration happy, and not bring any undo and or unwanted attention to my Students.

This Blog draws upon a multitude of sources for the material contained herein with much of it being derived from my years of studying – practicing Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), with practical refinements I credit to my time learning from Richard McHugh, Ph.D. Dr. McHugh is perhaps the first “pure” NLP based Psychologist and a truly authentic Human Being.

The Blog’s main corpus in terms of articles and useful information comes from the large body of work on NLP as filtered through the teachings of Dr. McHugh. At least a bit of the material referenced above is, of course, run through the filter of my cumulative life experience which ranges from carpenter, to soldier, to teacher and several professions in between. As you might have all ready guessed, I’m “old“ which in this context means I’m over 50 and therefore relieved of any obligation to state my exact age. Hey, with age comes privilege; at least that’s my take on it and I’m sticking to it!

What You Will Find Here:

The primary focus of this Blog is effective communication and rapport building for Teachers. Specifically, here you will find a working and practical definition of NLP in the form of a series of techniques – methods with the emphasis being on going from protocol on paper, or on screen, to application in the classroom via the lesson plan. We are going to proceed in a step wise, logical fashion with the result being you will not only develop a solid foundation in NLP techniques, you will also be capable of seamlessly meshing said techniques with your existing lesson plans.

It’s going to be a great ride, all comments – feedback are appreciated and will be acknowledged. ENJOY! Frankly Frank

    Please also include tips for teachers that will improve their understanding about the subject

      I am in the process of writing a couple of papers on just this topic, Aaron. Several NLP based organizations claim to address the issue of going from theory to working practice in the classroom by a teacher, however, their efforts are little more than a marketing ploy. The authors lack anything like authentic credentials in terms of formal education (degrees) or real world experience, e.g., actual time as a classroom teacher.

      Closely associated with the use of NLP techniques in a formal classroom setting as a teacher is the issue of “learning styles” and this too is something I am addressing in full. Future postings will be made in these areas so please stop in from time to time to see if anything interests you.
