A practical guide for the classroom teacher in using doable magic as a motivator, metaphor and curriculum delivery tool.

Can a teacher be a magician? Does mathemagic exist? Is magic an efficient teaching resource? Can student be magicians? To answer all these questions, the author of this book, a teacher and a magician, created a genuine method of motivating students: Educational Magic. It is a useful method not only when it comes to helping the processes of teaching and learning but also when it comes to explaining concepts, mediating conflicts, improving conduct, increasing self-esteem, etc.

With this book, the reader will learn new, surprisingly effective techniques. There are almost 100 tricks explained in this book. They are all easy to do, require a minimum of practice, and are described in a clear, simple, and concise language. The necessary materials are used in schools on a daily basis: writing paper, chalk, newspaper clippings, and construction paper. Hence, the book encourages recycling, re-using, and environmental protection.

Teaching With Magic is a book full of innovative magic resources that promote the continuous updating and training of professional educators. Teachers, professors, parents, instructors, entertainers, storyteller and magicians who would like to hold workshops for children will find numerous suggestions that can be immediately put to practice.

There are many books about magic: however, the educational community hasn't had access to a work that shows how to apply magic to education, tailored for the children and teenagers of today.

For years, Xuxo Ruiz Dominguez, known for Xuxo's Magic in theaters, has worked both as a teacher and a magician. He presents his own experience from both walks of life in this book. As a Educational Magic expert, he has conducted numerous courses for teachers on the pedagogical use of magic.
