Now for a final review. To you as a teacher—to stimulate your thinking, to stir your feelings, and to spur you on to action—we’ve presented in this book seven basic principles, 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 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.
