“Simply put, students are more engaged, misbehave less, and learn better from teachers who teach enthusiastically.  A teacher’s enthusiasm for his or her subject matter can be contagious.  Since the dynamic of the classroom is similar to that of the stage in terms of speaker/listener relationships, the acting craft offers teachers a model for skills and strategies that can be incorporated into their own work to convey more enthusiasm for the material and for the students.” — book jacket
