The short video for teachers looks how body language or non-verbal communication can go a long way in motivating pupils.

A drama class at Myton School in Warwick is observed and reviewed by assistant headteacher Chris Caswell, who has studied and written about body language.

He highlights performance enhancing gestures, including touching the head to encourage thinking and moving an arm to 'conduct' the lesson and retain pupils' attention.
