Teaching-The ultimate how-to-video
There is a good post over at New Cool Thing on teaching in the quorums. In the comments there is a debate about whether one can “learn” to be a good teacher. I have no doubt that some are just born great teachers, others are born boring, but both types can improve.
The single best how-to-teach video that I have ever seen is available online. It is a 45 minute lectuer by MIT professor Patrick Winston. He calls it “How To Speak”. From what I can see, Patrick was was born boring, but taught himself to give great lectures. He studied it and broke it down into very specific skills. It is fascinating, and ANY teacher or Sacrament Meeting speaker could improve their game markedly just by watching this lecture.
