To truly teach someone something, you need to do more than just recite information. Any parent or teacher instinctively knows this. Yet, many still struggle with getting their children and students to put forth the effort to actually learn something new.
Here’s the best way to increase learning. When you present something, follow this teaching formula:
WHAT it is you will explain.
WHY it is important to know about it.
HOW the listener can use it.
Give an EXAMPLE of how it works.
The more you use this simple approach, the more that your children and students will be motivated to put forth the effort to learn what you are teaching.
