Teaching should be like conjuring a rabbit from a hat

Dale Salwak is a professor of English at Citrus College in California and a professional magician in his life beyond the classroom. In an article published on TES, professor Salwak explains that every time teachers deliver a lesson to their students, they are using the same techniques used by magicians to entertain, engage and direct the attention of the audience. We believe as professor Salwak that students should feel that something very special is about to happen every time a lesson begins and they should be part of the show.
