Excerpt from The Ideal Adult Class in the Sunday-School: A Manual of Principles and Methods
The adult class in the Sunday-school, as we know it, is the product of the last few years. It is a creation of the new Sunday-school stimulus, and in turn it has done much to inspire that stimulus. And the adult class of the present day is so new that it requires a new sort of teacher to guide it in the study of the Bible.
This new sort of teacher must be willing to break with traditions. He must be willing to forego the absolutism of the old-fashioned adult-class teacher, and organize his class with directing officers and committees. He must be ready to adopt a new kind of recitation, or no recitation at all. He must accept a quite new relation between the class and the teacher. In the old days the pupils - the few that came at all - placed the teacher on a pedestal and bowed down before him. In these new days the teacher is only the senior partner in a company of business associates, seeking to do busi ness for the Master.
The ideal adult-class teacher must also be inventive. As he is keen to recognize problems, he must be shrewd to meet them with his own devices. For example, does he note a lack of original work and study? Then he must make all kinds of alluring assignments of home work - the preparation of charts, of map talks, of talks on definite themes connected with the lesson subject.
