#54 The Teaching Triangle


Table Talk Discussions #54

This week’s focus:  The Teaching Triangle

You’ll learn:

  • The roles of the teacher, the learner, and the spirit
  • That “understanding” is the responsibility of the parent, not just knowledge
  • How to know when your child has learned by the spirit

“These verses (D&C 68:25-26) do not simply recommend or suggest that we teach our children. Rather, they outline a law unto the inhabitants of Zion – that we must teach our children to understand! Understanding is a spiritual outcome; it is a result. Simply engaging in the activity of teaching is not the responsibility we have been assigned. Rather, the charge is to teach children to understand!” ~David A. Bednar, Increase in Learning, pg. 69
