    We’ve said it here zillions of times but this seems like another perfect opportunity to remind myself that teaching to the eyes isn’t just about comprehension but about connecting humans to e/other. WBYT combined w/teaching to the eyes is a powerful combo and novel for many teachers and kids alike! I have found that the connecting eyes PLUS the movement toward the indiv Ss and about the room, to the kid/ to the back of the room kids, to the whiteboard and back really compels the listeners while slowing down my rate of speech… and the visiting admins REALLY dig it (‘cept the ones who are obsessed with novice low kids using L2 to communicate w/e/other).
    SO I agree that teaching to the eyes isn’t adequate to measure comprehension but it does often extend that attentional window while building connection and therefore trust. When I watch pros like Alina F teaching to the eyes, it feels like a swan dance…

    We will overcome our robotic selves. We will learn to love. To learn even a fraction of that was worth the 42 years since I started in 1977. Indeed, it was probably why I did it. Teaching is a gift to us.
