Hendricks' "7 Laws of the Teacher"

It's the beginning of another school year for most schools/universities in the Philippines, and we teachers are again reminded of Dr. Hendricks' 7 Laws:

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.
