What if Charles Darwin had written The Origin of Species and nobody noticed? Or Copernicus had shown that the earth went around the sun and nobody be-lieved him? Or Jonas Salk had found a cure for polio and nobody cared? Such has been the fate of Siegfried Engelmann, pioneering inventor of a better way to teach that almost nobody uses.
Engelmann has spent the last 50 years working out answers to basic questions every good teacher asks. What should I teach my students? How can I teach them so that they all learn what I’m trying to teach? How can I accelerate their learning as much as possible and help those who are behind? How do I know in what order to teach things and what not to teach at all? How will I know right away if a student is learning or is confused and needs help? How do I re-teach? How do I get my students to pay attention and work hard? How do I get them to trust me? How do I get them to trust themselves? In sum, how can I become the best teacher possible?
