Others have pointed out that Geisen's presentation style is corny, but really this style works very well for middle school (and to a lesser extent high school). These talks have a lot of good suggestions and ideas; check out the lecture on creativity which is top-notch. A lot of students (even good ones) could benefit from this great class.
