Basic Principles of Teaching

By Mary Tickner


The following is an excerpt from material prepared by Alice Enns and myself for a proposed Distance Education Program which ultimately, did not go forward. However, Alice and I learned a great deal from our research and have continued to use this material in our pedagogy classes. I thought it would be appropriate as we begin a new teaching year, to share with you, some of the ideas we conceived as an adjunct to the Maxim's of Mrs. Curwen, who created one of the first "method books" around 1895 and was reprinted at least 25 times, well into the 20th century. How's that for longevity!





I am certain many of you could add to the list so don't be shy. Let's hear them!
