[Video] Effective Teaching In Honor Of Back To School
STEPHEN & MICHELLE SMALENBERGER, EA & CFP ®
In honor of back to school we wanted to share this quote. It’s not only about teaching but also about learning.
“The Mediocre Teacher Tells, The Good Teacher Explains, The Superior Teacher Demonstrates, The Great Teacher Inspires.” – William Arthur Ward
What’s true effective teaching? We’ve noticed with clients and our daughter is that at different times we use different ways of teaching or learning. At different times we can simply explain something, while other times we need to demonstrate it. And sometimes we need to inspire someone so they realize what they can become or achieve in order to get people to start making progress.
There are different times we have to use a variety of techniques depending on the person. Think about how you can use this in your life. With your kids going back to school, if there’s someone who’s great at teaching them, acknowledge that and let them know!
