Right now
there is an aspiring teacher
who is working on a 60-page paper
based on some age-old education theory
developed by some dead education professor
wondering to herself what this task
that she's engaging in
has to do with what she wants to do with her life,
which is be an educator,
change lives, and spark magic.
Right now there is an aspiring teacher
in a graduate school of education
who is watching a professor babble on and on
about engagement
in the most disengaging way possible.
Right now
there's a first-year teacher at home
who is pouring through lesson plans
trying to make sense of standards,
who is trying to make sense of how
to grade students appropriately,

while at the same time saying to herself
over and over again,
"Don't smile till November,"
because that's what she was taught
in her teacher education program.
Right now there's a student
who is coming up with a way
to convince his mom or dad
that he's very, very sick
and can't make it to school tomorrow.
On the other hand, right now
there are amazing educators
that are sharing information,
information that is shared in such a beautiful way
that the students are sitting
at the edge of their seats

just waiting for a bead of sweat
to drop off the face of this person
so they can soak up all that knowledge.
Right now there is also a person
who has an entire audience rapt with attention,
a person that is weaving a powerful narrative
about a world
that the people who are listening
have never imagined or seen before,
but if they close their eyes tightly enough,
they can envision that world
because the storytelling is so compelling.
Right now there's a person who can tell an audience
to put their hands up in the air
and they will stay there till he says,
"Put them down."
Right now.
So people will then say,
"Well, Chris, you describe the guy
who is going through some awful training
but you're also describing these powerful educators.
If you're thinking about the world of education
or urban education in particular,
these guys will probably cancel each other out,
and then we'll be okay."
The reality is, the folks I described
as the master teachers,
the master narrative builders,
the master storytellers
are far removed from classrooms.
The folks who know the skills about how to teach
and engage an audience
don't even know what teacher certification means.
They may not even have the degrees
to be able to have anything
to call an education.
And that to me is sad.
It's sad because the people who I described,
they were very disinterested in the learning process,
want to be effective teachers,
but they have no models.
I'm going to paraphrase Mark Twain.
Mark Twain says that proper preparation,
or teaching,
is so powerful that it can turn bad morals to good,
it can turn awful practices into powerful ones,
it can change men and transform them
into angels.
The folks who I described earlier
got proper preparation in teaching,
not in any college or university,
but by virtue of just being in the
same spaces of those who engage.

Guess where those places are?
Barber shops,
rap concerts, and most importantly,
in the black church.
And I've been framing this idea
called Pentecostal pedagogy.

Who here has been to a black church?
We got a couple of hands.
You go to a black church,
their preacher starts off
and he realizes that he has to engage the audience,
so he starts off with this sort of wordplay
in the beginning oftentimes,
and then he takes a pause,
and he says, "Oh my gosh, they're
not quite paying attention."

So he says, "Can I get an amen?"
Audience: Amen.
Chris Emdin: So I can I get an amen?
Audience: Amen.

CE: And all of a sudden, everybody's reawoken.
That preacher bangs on the pulpit for attention.
He drops his voice at a very, very low volume
when he wants people to key into him,
and those things are the skills that we need
for the most engaging teachers.
So why does teacher education
only give you theory and theory
and tell you about standards and tell you about
all of these things that have nothing to do
with the basic skills, that magic that you need
to engage an audience, to engage a student?
So I make the argument that
we reframe teacher education,

that we could focus on content, and that's fine,
and we could focus on theories, and that's fine,
but content and theories
with the absence of the magic
of teaching and learning means nothing.
Now people oftentimes say,
"Well, magic is just magic."

There are teachers who,
despite all their challenges, who have those skills,
get into those schools and are
able to engage an audience,

and the administrator walks by and says,
"Wow, he's so good, I wish all
my teachers could be that good."

And when they try to describe what that is,
they just say, "He has that magic."
But I'm here to tell you
that magic can be taught.
Magic can be taught.
Magic can be taught.
Now, how do you teach it?
You teach it by allowing people
to go into those spaces
where the magic is happening.
If you want to be an aspiring
teacher in urban education,

you've got to leave the confines of that university
and go into the hood.
You've got to go in there and
hang out at the barbershop,

you've got to attend that black church,
and you've got to view those folks
that have the power to engage
and just take notes on what they do.
At our teacher education classes at my university,
I've started a project where every single student
that comes in there sits and watches rap concerts.
They watch the way that the rappers move
and talk with their hands.
They study the way that he
walks proudly across that stage.

They listen to his metaphors and analogies,
and they start learning these little things
that if they practice enough
becomes the key to magic.
They learn that if you just stare at a student
and raise your eyebrow about a quarter of an inch,
you don't have to say a word
because they know that that
means that you want more.

And if we could transform teacher education
to focus on teaching teachers
how to create that magic
then poof! we could make dead classes come alive,
we could reignite imaginations,
and we can change education.
Thank you.
