i agree

in that power teaching seemed to be radical mostly in its volume, as opposed to its practical application. However, i can see it being effective in entry-level language classes as well as with younger children. I thought that showing us the video was a great way of proving the point that it is easy for us to request more energy in classrooms, or more physical engagement, and another thing entirely to implement these concepts. 

The question remains: How do we formally introduce educational methods that have wider appeal, so that class-time can be productive for the most students as possible?
