"Teaching has its natural laws as fixed as the laws of the planets or of growing mechanisms," claims Gregory (1884). In this popular teacher's text, we learn how to ensure successful teaching. Great for classical educators.
When John Milton Gregory (1822-1898) first published The Seven Laws of Teaching in 1884, he called it "his offering on the altar of service to God and his fellowmen." However, in 1917, Gregory's "offering" was revised and theological references were excised from the work. This edition is the original unabridged text.

You've never seen an edition like this: In 1954, Baker Book House published a revised edition of the text that "abridged" much of the Christian content and emphasis: we've restored The Seven Laws of Teaching to its original 1886 text. Not only does your Canon Press version give the unabridged first edition text, but we've also added a number of invaluable tools not available anywhere else:
