In the Classical world, where it is often assumed that the teacher’s responsibility is to DO something engaging, or intelligent, or complicated with the Great Books, regular people who work as teachers often feel inadequate. Adam addresses this assumption, suggesting it is the Great Books themselves, not their teachers, that do the important work. To simplify what is difficult, to make accessible what is opaque – this alone is the true end of teaching. Adam shares principles that make this all-important technique as easy as reading humbly and asking the right questions. With these principles in mind, anyone can be an effective teacher.
