Teachers of the Craft (Part #5)
Getting Organized: Develop A Lesson Plan
by Wren Walker
Many people are investigating the religions of Witchcraft, Wicca and other Neo-Pagan Paths today. There are many books and reference materials available, yet after some self study, there are some folks who would like to meet and perhaps work with a physical teacher. This can be a rewarding learning experience – or it could turn out to be your worst nightmare…
Remember your favorite teacher? The one whose class was always interesting and the time seemed to fly by? You also probably got a decent grade in this class. Why?
In contrast, if you have ever been subjected to a talk or lecture being presented by a “rambler”. you know to what agonizing tortures the human mind can be subjected to without going completely mad.. I have left many a lecture hall with “jaw cramps.” You know what those are. They result from two opposing forces: the overwhelming need to yawn widely and the cultural desire not to seem rude or bored. Checking your lecture notes after an experience like this will probably reveal more interesting samples of random doodling than anything of substance on the subject presented.
