Images: The Essential Qualities and Practices of a Teacher of History
In this lecture, Wes Callihan notes the essential qualities and practices that should characterize a history teacher. He begins by suggesting that humility and gratitude should be chief virtues for the teacher of history. He also uses the ancient rhetor and author Quintilian (35–100 AD) as a departing point for speaking about attaining copiousness. He also cites Plutarch (45–120 AD), who says in his Moralia that education is “not filling a bucket but lighting a fire.”
Below are images of Quintilian and Plutarch, and books published by each.
