It's no secret that the adults learn in very different ways than children. While children tend to embrace a "show me" approach to everything they learn, adults need to know that what is being taught will really count for something in their lives. The need to validate what is being taught can present adult educators with the added challenge of analyzing how they teach, what they teach, and how adult students will receive it.

Teach with Style presents a simple, coherent, and easy-to-use method for teaching adults based on the ways that adults learn best. Created by educator and trainer Jim Teeters, the Teach with Style method provides instructors with the essentials of teaching adults in four distinct instructor styles: Systematic, Stimulating, Spontaneous, and Safe. Five strategies accompany each style and allow educators to refine each method to their specific needs. Teach with Style will help both beginning and advanced instructors effectively promote adult learning, while encouraging both instructors and students to change and grow in the classroom.
