Format: Paperback
Hendricks has written a gem containing valuable information on how a person can become a more dynamic teacher. Among the important points the author covers include:
1. If you stop growing today, you stop teaching tomorrow.
2. Convince your students that you believe in them!
3. Maximum learning is the result of maximum involvement.
4. Preparation is the key to good communication.
5. The teacher's character, compassion, and content are what motivates the learner the most.
6. Teaching and learning are most effective when both teacher and learner are prepared.
7. The teacher needs to be creative in the ways learners are motivated.
8. Tension is an important part of the learning process.
While Hendricks writes from the viewpoint of a seminary professor, anyone involved in any kind of teaching environment will greatly benefit from the book.
Read, enjoy, and be challenged to be a better teacher!

Howard Hendricks is something of a Conservative Evangelical icon, a teacher of teachers, who for more than forty years shaped the teaching ministries of students at Dallas Seminary. Regardless of what one might think of Dispensationalism, it is undeniable that Dallas Grads are formidable teachers. More than any other figure, the credit for that reality goes to Howard Hendricks.

Using the acronym "TEACHER," and basing his approach on Gregory's "Seven Laws of Teaching," Hendricks seeks to outline the basic skills, attitudes and characteristics of good teaching and of the good teacher. Clearly he seeks to transform not only the teaching but also the teacher. He does this by devoting one chapter to each of seven characteristics , in an anecdotally- and wisdom-rich format.

Chapter One - The Law of the Teacher-- Stop growing today and you stop teaching tomorrow. He begins by emphasizing that the teacher can only teach as he/she continues to be a learner. When the learning stops, the well runs dry. In addition, people will become conformed to the image of the teacher. Therefore, a teacher must take care to be worthy of imitation, especially in the area of character. For Hendricks, the best candidates for the role of teacher are faithful, available and teachable. Other people need not apply. The teacher must be developing in the intellectual, physical [practical], and social dimensions.

Chapter Two - The Law of Education--How people learn determines how you teach. People are only candidates for learning when they know they don't know and when they care about that. After Maslow, Hendricks speaks of four levels of learning : unconscious incompetence, conscious incompetence, conscious competence, and unconscious competence.

Format: Paperback
The great Dallas Theological Seminary professor Dr. Hendricks shares with others his basic principles for passing on to his students the knowledge and passion for God's Word. Basically the book can be boiled down to one primary principle - you must have passion for what you know to transfer what you know to others. The book was originally released as The Seven Laws of the Teacher, but has since been repackaged and re-released under this new title with a new cover and design - but the truths shared by Hendricks are timeless and powerful - and should be read by EVERY teacher!

The first law of the teacher was the best, in my opinion - if you ever stop growing today, you stop teaching tomorrow. Dr. Hendricks challenges the teacher to remain a student, to always continue learning, pursuing truth and knowledge - and to pass that thirst on to their students - far more important than any particular lesson or tidbit of information is the thirst for knowledge and truth - and that is something that is modeled for students in the lives of the teacher. If the teacher is stale, the lessons and information can't be fresh!

The Seven Laws of the Teacher are as follows:

* The Law of the Teacher - if you stop growing today, you stop teaching tomorrow.

* The Law of Education - the way people learn determines how you teach.

* The Law of Activity - maximum learning is always the result of maximum involvement.

* The Law of Communication - to truly impart information requires the building of bridges.

* The Law of the Heart - teaching that impacts is not head to head, but heart to heart.

* The Law of Encouragement - teaching tends to be most effective when the learner is properly motivated.

* The Law of Readiness - the teaching-learning process will be most effective when both student and teacher are adequately prepared.

Format: Paperback
When it comes to impact Howard Hendricks is a master teacher. Following these proven principles helped my college classes become full. These principles work in formal classes, at any level, and in informal instruction. Parents will become more effective in their parenting. This is a small, easily read book that will produce big dividends.

This one is a must read from anyone. Prof Hendricks takes his usual down-to-earth style, and cram packs this book full of useful information. Whether you teach Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, or just want to be a more effective witness of the gospel, this book is for you.
