I have mixed feels about the concept of power teaching. I have never heard of power teaching until I watched that video. It seemed like a good concept because the students looked like they were having fun and they were also very engaged. While watching the video, I observed a few problems with the technique. It could have just been how the desks were arranged, but the teacher did not have room to walk around the classroom and see what every students was discussing. Because of this, it is hard for the teacher to see if the students actually understand the material that was previously taught. Another problem is that even though the students are talking to each other, it is difficult to see if the students are talking about the material that was taught or if they are just talking about nonsense.
If i were to use the power teaching technique in my future classroom, I would arrange the desks in rows and the students can turn to the child next to them so that everyone has a partner. It will be easier for me to walk up and down the rows to see if the students are discussing the correct material. I like the idea of power teaching because it gets the entire class involved and it seems like a new, fun way for them to learn. I would just imporve the minor details.
