Editor's Notes

  • Create the proper environment:activities, charts, visuals, student presentations.
  • Students will rise to the level of your expectations. You will get what you expect.
  • Provide applications for each lesson. Knowledge without application leads to pride. Knowledge must be applied to be useful. Teach to change lives.
  • To teach the student the most information in the shortest time with the least effort and the greatest retention use signs, posters,charts, pictures, music, rhymes, alliteration, color, activities, discussion.
  • If your students are not motivated, perhaps the reason is that you did not have the right worm on the hook. Study your students. Seize attention. Stir curiosity.
  • Equipping is best evaluated by what the student does after class and should impact both character and conduct.
