7LL Users Review Mar 5, 2005
Three years ago, our church of about 1,000 set about to reinvent itself within our Christian Education department. At about 26,000 feet flying somewhere over Arizona, I was shaken while reading it for the first time. It shocked me into realizing how really boring many teachers can communicate without anyone learning anything...always pushing content while omitting any application or creativity to ensure learning. These principles revitalized my own teaching, and I have used it as our core curriculum for the 15 teachers we have in our education department. Our teachers have come up with some great classes as well as creative ideas in their professional/occupational lives as a result of this book. Going on year three, we stand by this book as the best-of-class, and continue using its principles weekly. We now have a growing and alive ministry, and can honestly say this book began it all. This book is a "must" if you want to change lives vs. "cover" the material.
A book for all Oct 18, 2004
As someone who sat under Bruce Wilkinson during his college classes, I really wanted to read this book. It's not that I'm a teacher now, but I serve in a project management role.
A lot of the information taught in this book relates to working with people. Some of the information I need is from my technical staff - my role in learning. Some of the information I need is to be taught to the everyday user - the my role in teaching. While "Loving your students unconditionally" may not apply in the real world, it actually does.
I find my co-workers respond better to someone who cares about them then by someone who is just doing the work.
A must read book!
The Teacher May 28, 2003
This is by far the best book on teaching. If you think you are not a teacher... think again. You teach in every aspect of your life. You may be a parent, a boss, a manager, or even a teacher.
His method is not simple and it takes work to perfect. One of my professors from school said of the conferance, "Go to this 7 laws seminar. Go rob a 7-11 if you have to pay for the seminar. Just go."
I would agree. Though I am not advocating armed robbery.
Best Book on Teaching Available Feb 26, 2003
Every teacher at every level needs to read this book. School teachers, college professors, Bible study leaders, whatever kind of group you lead can revolutionize your teaching style. Wilkinson's basic premise is that you haven't taught anything until the people in your class have learned something. What a concept!
Excellent Resource Sep 5, 2002
This is no doubt the best teaching course that I have ever gone through. If you are in any way involved in teaching, please use this book!
