Item description for Teaching for Results by Findley B. Edge...
Overview Why is there such an amazing lack of Bible knowledge even among people who have attended Sunday school classes regularly for years? In Teaching For Results, Revised Edition, Findley B. Edge explains that many Sunday school teachers fail to achieve better results because "their teaching aims are too general and often vague." The solution, he says, is for the teacher to focus on a single objective for each lesson and "work toward that aim with singleness of purpose." Dr. Edge then lays out a carefully crafted,step-by-step approach to help Sunday school teachers improve their effectiveness. He demonstrates how to identify teaching objectives, choose the appropriate one for each teaching situation, develop a plan to meet the objective, and successfully implement the plan. For both Sunday school teachers and anyone involved in training them, Teaching For Results, Revised Edition is an important resource that will be the foundation for effective Bible teaching for generations to come.

A Must Read For Sunday School Workers Aug 22, 2007
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.
"Teaching for Results" is a must read for all educators! Sep 15, 2000
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 fifth star.
Churches should consider requiring all Sunday School teachers to read this book and to even write a short report about each chapter and how their teaching methods will be impacted by what they have read. Public speakers will be very interested in reading about how a listener automatically responds to the way certain questions or visual images are phrased. Parents would benefit tremendously in understanding the way children learn most effectively.
"Teaching for Results" isn't the only book on the market on the subject of teaching and learning but it certainly has to rank high on the list of those that can be used immediately and repeatedly. Get it today!
