First published in 1884, this template for teaching continues to cut accurate patterns. Though the book promises "a clear and simple statement of the important factors governing the art of teaching," it delivers much more. Here is teaching tonic to be taken in strong doses by those who want to rejuvenate their teaching. This classic work by John Milton Gregory should be part of the curriculum for all schools training teachers. That “The Seven Laws of Teaching” is still being reprinted is a testimony to the timeless value of the author's wisdom contained within its pages. There are times when the old ways are the best ways and this book is one of those. Public schools, the failures that they are, would do well to scrap modern pedagogy and practice The Seven Laws of Teaching. John Milton Gregory's clear and concise presentation of the fundamental laws of teaching has been studied and applied in a variety of educational situations, from church schools to in-service programs of prestigious businesses. Educational fads come and go, but the basic principles of teaching and learning, those discussed in this book, are not subject to the winds of change. "For succinct, usable material on the art of teaching, this book, in our judgment, cannot be surpassed."-The Christlife Magazine "This is one of the most splendid books ever put in print on the art of teaching."-Calvary Bookstore, New York "Here is the psychology of teaching at its best."-The Fellowship Baptist "Teachers will find in this handbook . . . far more practical help than they would find in a more technical presentation."-Review and Expositor "It summarizes beautifully and systematically the seven factors that are present in every instance of true teaching."-The Banner "It will be a wise pastor or Christian education director who will require Sunday school teachers to read this book."-Bibliotheca Sacra "Unexcelled as an aid to teaching any subject whatsoever and any individual or group."-Biblical Research Monthly

About the Author:

John Milton Gregory (1822-1898) was the second president of Kalamazoo College from 1864 until 1867. Following this, served as the first president of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, from the university's founding in 1867 until his resignation in 1880. While Gregory credited Jonathan Baldwin Turner as the central figure in the university's establishment, Gregory, during his tenure as University of Illinois's first president, helped determine the direction of the university by advocating the presence of a classically-based liberal arts curriculum in addition to the industrial and agricultural curriculum desired by the Illinois Industrial League and many state residents and lawmakers of the time.
