An entertaining rumination by Kaz Cooke, author of the continual best-selling book Girl Stuff, which was informed by an extensive survey of more than 4000 teens. Kaz will use her trademark wit and insight to identify the ten types of most terrifying (and terrific) teachers.

Which methods of teachers are guaranteed to have students rolling their eyes and wilting? Which kinds of teachers create confidence, respect and (whacko) compliance?

An examination of what kids want from their teachers, and whether teachers can (or even should) comply. Kaz will talk about the needs and mindset of primary schoolers through to teenagers.

Some teaching styles and ideas can facilitate learning, while others just get in the way. How come kids trust some teachers and not others? Why do some anecdotes stick with young people whereas other stories can be as helpful as gesturing with a teaspoon at a charging bear?

How to help students and yourself, and a handful of compelling reasons to re-inspire you and maybe stop you getting into the art supply cupboard with a bottle of hospital brandy
