An inspiring, funny and rousing TED talk by Rita Pierson, a passionate teacher who believes that teaching and learning pivots on relationships. In this short, eight-minute talk, she proposes that “no significant learning can occur without a significant relationship”, and that kids simply “don’t learn from people they don’t like”, and provides engaging anecdotes and tips for connecting with students.
