Haley Scholar Reading Groups

Every practice that Millan now uses, he gained as a child while intently studying and watching dogs on his grandfather’s farm; this was his schooling for the profession. In addition, Millan is described as having “that indefinable thing called presence,” which makes it possible for him to achieve desired outcomes (131).
For a moment, let’s think of ourselves as movement specialists. What important kinetic or body language lessons have you learned and implemented in order to achieve the presence necessary to achieve at a higher educational level here at SIUE?
Or, what distinct yet subtle postures or movements have you adapted while here that are useful in sites of study or instruction such as classrooms, the library, or places where you work with groups? How so?
