Summary Dr. Hendricks has presented to all who take the time to read this book a tool that will enable even the most seasoned teacher an avenue for change that will improve, not only their teaching skills, but enhance the learning skills of the their students.
This book is base on seven easy to understand proven principles that enable direct application from the book to the classroom. These principles are as follows; The Law of the Teacher, of Education, of Activity, the Law of Communication, of the Heart, of Encouragement, and the Law of Readiness. The first of these principles the Law of the Teacher states, “If you stop growing today you stop teaching tomorrow.” He also shares a philosophy that should be adopted buy all. Hendricks says, “that I, as a teacher, am primarily a learner, a student among students. I am perpetuating the learning process; I am still en route. And by becoming a student again, I as a teacher will look at the education process through a radically new- and uniquely personal- set of eyes.” Chapter Three The Law of Activity caught my attention. Its states, “Maximum learning is always the result of maximum involvement. It was if God was saying this is you and I believe this holds true for everyone as long as the student values the activity. One example that I believe he talked about and is near and dear to my heart is evangelism. You can teach an evangelism class and you can
