Weekly Quote: Steven Shumway

Weekly quotes come from BYU faculty members who are regarded by their students as being both spiritually strengthening and intellectually enlarging.

“The next time you read the scriptures, especially the New Testament or when the Savior is teaching, … read them from the standpoint of looking at their teaching methods. And if you want to become a good teacher, have the Savior as your model and look and see how He presented information, how He connected with the people, how He provided for direct instruction, inquiry based instruction, Socratic method. He did it all. … He’s the great Teacher. … Look to see how He did it.”

Steven Shumway, Professor of Technology & Engineering Education
