Why aren't my students responding to my teaching? What can I do to help my students retain more information? Should I be mearuring my teaching efficiency by the way students learn? How come I always get all of the boring students? Findley Edge's book, "Teaching for Results," will answer those questions and others. More importantly, it explains cognitive and learning development in a way that is easilty understood. Don't be fooled, however, into thinking it is simplistic. It certainly is not as Findley did his homework into learning and teaching methods. This is a book that every institution that trains teachers should require every student to read. If there is only one flaw in the book it is in trying to track Findley's use of terms when he transitions from one idea to another. This is most important to a person trying to make a teaching outline from some of the chapters in the book. If that is not important to you then I would give the book a...
I had the opportunity and pleasure of sitting under Dr. Edge when he was a professor at Southern Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky; in fact, his "Teacher Training" class was my first class as a first-year seminary student. Even though I am now a retired professor, I still remember the types of lesson plans included in the book -- (1) the knowledge-aim lesson, (2) the inspiration-aim lesson, and (3) the conduct-response aim lesson. The serious Sunday School teacher could greatly improve his/her teaching methodology with a careful reading of the book. In my opinion, every Minister of Education should train his/her Sunday School teachers with this book. The late Dr. Edge has left the Christian community with a wonderful book to use to improve the effectiveness of Sunday School / Church School, etc.
If you are only going to read one book to help you improve your teaching, this should be the one. In this book, Edge encourages teachers to not only know what their goal is in teaching the lesson, but to aim for that goal. His premise is that teachers should not be satisfied with putting some information out there and hoping that the students learn something from it. The teacher should have an action in mind and aim to get the students to do that action. If the students are not learning and putting what they learn into action then the teacher is not teaching. This book is well worth reading.
