Asking "How Would You Like to Be Taught?"

If you're struggling to figure out how to present some material, here's a useful tip:

Ask yourself, "How would I like be taught this information? What discussion points would I want to cover? What questions would I have?"

In short, teach others as you'd like to be taught. (Maybe that's a teacher's 'golden rule'?)

We always must strive to teach what's needful for our listeners and learners, under the direction of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes that means teaching in a way that's not our comfort zone. But most often if you teach the way you'd like to be taught, you'll find that you have energy, enthusiasm, and joy that spills over and makes it easy for others to learn.
