More and more teachers are facilitating workshops and planning presentations for their colleagues. Not only are school districts calling upon teachers to provide valuable ideas for staff development, but teachers themselves are becoming more active in sharing and working with others. "Sharing Your Good Ideas" describes presentation and workshop ideas and strategies designed to help today's educators organize and conduct effective presentations for other teaching adults. It is written for those with little or no experience in workshop facilitation, but even the most experienced presenter will find the ideas valuable. Full of common sense advice and strategies that are practical, useful, and effective, the book provides teachers with presentation guidelines and materials based upon adult education and learning principles. There are few materials written specifically to guide practicing teachers who are interested in conducting workshops. And the materials that are available do not consider the many skills teachers already possess. "Sharing Your Good Ideas" is intended to fill this gap.

This book is specifically focused towards teachers who conduct workshops but I found it useful for anyone who is in charge of running a workshop or making presentations to adults. It differs from most manuals intended to train the trainer, because there isn't a set formula for an effective workshop but ideas that any facilitator can use no matter what their subject or style of presentation. I especially found the appendix useful with forms that could be removed and copied just as they are. I immediately used the Evaluation Form to hand out to participants at the end of the session and a self-evaluation for me to use to record what worked and what didn't. Of all the books I bought and read when I spent a summer conducting public relations workshops, this book, intended for teachers, turned out to be the most useful of all.
