Don’t guess…

look for clusters, and then ask.

Build rapport...

We don't care about a person unless we can connect with them.

Body language is catchy…

Body language is catchy…

...especially yours.

When a person is surprised, their eyebrows are often raised. This typically happens as a part of opening the eyes wider, perhaps to see more clearly what is going on. The more the surprise. the higher the eyebrows are raised.

Raising the eyebrows asks for attention from others and can signal general emphasis. When as question is asked and the eyebrows are raised afterwards, this is a clear invitation to answer the question.

Opposite to the dominant lowering of eyebrows, raising eyebrows is may be a submissive move or indicate openness, as it lets the other person see your eyes ('I am not looking where I should not!'). Dominance and attractive signals can often be similar and raising eyebrows to expose eyes can also be a signal of attraction ('I'm looking at you, gorgeous. Can you see?').

standing powerfully more capable of abstract thought,Japan students write better when have good posture

Push your eyebrows together...

How you carry your body shapes how you carry out your life

Words allow people to give information, body tells what they think about the information. 

 

 

homework on paper you can see...can’t see screens

Looking above the desk

Picture of kids sitting, next to one standing, when 1:1 always sitting, need to look below the desk

lyndsey sit, will what are you thinking, jennas legs come out, voice calms

torso pointed away

 

 

kids point toes to where they want to be

Reminder...

Kids’ perception of how they should behave and perform

is determined by perceiving teacher's non-verbal messages.


Now that you can pick up on a non-verbal cue...what do 

you do?

extra stuff below

“Once you label me, 

you negate me.”

 Soren Kierkegaard 

Knowledge is seductive--

it leads us to believe that we know things, it turns feelings into beliefs.

...use your body to talk because they are going to ignore your words

hands locked together=restrained, anxious or negative   give person something to open up

higher hands are more stress

 

 

your face

always have an expression

lack of expression = unapproachable

When you walk up do torsos open or close

people turn away from things they don't like
