To you as a teacher (to stimulate your thinking, to stir your feelings, and to spur you on to action) I’ve posted these seven basic principles of the teacher, in the form of an acrostic:
T The Law of the Teacher: Stop growing today and you stop teaching tomorrow.
E The Law of Education: How people learn determines how you teach.
A The Law of Activity: Maximum learning is always the result of maximum involvement.
C The Law of Communication: To truly impart information requires the building of bridges.
H The Law of the Heart: Teaching that impacts others is not head to head, but heart to heart.
E The Law of Encouragement: Teaching tends to be most effective when the learner is properly motivated.
R The Law of Readiness: The teaching-learning process will be most effective when both student and teacher are adequately prepared.
This acrostic is from Howard Hendricks.
