We must all acknowledge the limitations presented by books about teaching using CI. We must do more videos and live demonstrations as Sean and Alisa and Greg do in the Chicagoland TCI Group and also how they go right into weekend trainings and videotape them as much as they can as well. 

We all need to do that. I keep putting off making videos about my books because it’s so much trouble. I remember requesting like fifteen years ago that we send in a lot of video and use it to discuss our teaching here on the PLC but few have done it. No blame. It’s hard enough just to get through a teaching day. 

I’m trying to make some vids to go with this new book. But it’s not easy. It is a big effort. But no one said this change would be easy. Video up if you can, y’all, and leave your egos at the door.

Here is a link to that very dynamic group in Chicago in case anyone reading this wants to contact them:
