Eight Keys of Great Teaching

This used to be Seven Keys of Great Teaching, but Dr. Oliver DeMille added a new key in his new book “Leadership Education: The Phases of Learning“. I feel that these keys are useful to every family – home schooled, public schooled, or charter school.

  1. Classics, not Textbooks
  2. Mentors, not Professors
  3. Quality, not Conformity
  4. Time, not Content
  5. Inspire, not Require
  6. Simplicity, not Complexity
  7. You, not Them
  8. Secure, not Stress – NEW!

My first instinct when reading this list was, “I can do this!” and then it changed to, “HOW do I do this?” Over the next few months I will post about each KEY to Great Teaching.
