"If learning is one of humanity's greatest pursuits, then in turn, we need to make sure that teaching is one of our greatest strengths." Like any skill or expertise, there are basic, fundamental, and universal tenets of effective teaching. Many don't realize these principles exist.

These principles do exist, but unfortunately they're not so common! In "Teaching Simplified," Meagan Wright masterfully introduces these foundational tenets that will improve the craft of any teacher.
