Gregory on Boring Teachers

I was deeply challenged by John Milton Gregory’s The Seven Laws of TeachingI’ll be posting quite a number of quotes from his book in the weeks to come.

In some unfortunate cases, great knowledge is unaccompanied by the ability to inspire pupils with a love of study, and this is a condition fatal to successful teaching, especially with young pupils. Better a teacher with limited knowledge but with the power to stimulate his pupils, than an Agassiz without it.
