Positive feedback comes in all the time

As more and more people use these cards often, I hear lots about the impact they are having on their learning and on that of their pupils, students and colleagues.
Just this week the cards were the centrepiece of a professional development session for trainee teachers in Darlington, here in the North East of England.
Two teachers who had been introduced to the Teaching Influence cards as part of their NLP Practitioner with Still Point solutions, and then subsequently used them in their own teaching, and work with colleagues, devised the afternoon's training. The participants used the cards as part of their work on developing effective language in the classroom - with very positive results.
I'd love to hear even more about how you are using the cards. So email me or comment here.

Sample cards available for viewing

So you can see some of the language patterns on the cards, I've created a page that allows you to select the particular cards you want to see.
Alternatively you can let them run as a slideshow for you if that's what you prefer.

I'll soon be making them available as a download so call back soon Happy

Language cards finally complete

Following almost 18 months of research, trial and error, and critical feedback from teachers and others working in schools and the NLP world, the Teaching Influence cards are finished.
It's been quite a journey that all started when working with Kate Benson on the Durham Project in the Summer of 2006.
I was looking for ways to make the power of NLP-based language patterns both available and, more importantly, directly relevant to everyone involved in the teaching of children, young people and adults. I was well aware of Zebu cards and Jamie Smart's excellent card sets, so I used them as my starting point and developed prototype sets for use with the teachers, teaching assistants and advisory teachers involved in the project.
The resultant responses were so encouraging I decided to develop them further. Each subsequent set of cards was tested by teachers and others, and modified as a result of their frank feedback Happy
So I'm very confident that the published version is robust and extremely useful for those wanting to have ethical and considerable influence on the people they are teaching.
Of course, it doesn't stop there. When you use the cards, please let me know how they worked for you and how they impacted on your teaching and your pupils' learning.
