Seven Short Rules for Sunday School Teachers

Taken from "Our Sunday School Scrap Book," by Daniel Wise, 1866




1.  Speak little and softly.

2.  Preserve perfect order in your class.

3.  Avoid unnecessary words.

4.  Be not over-quick to notice and reprove little faults; it irritates rather than mends.

5.  Stop or change your course when attention flags, or is maintained with difficulty.

6.  Turn the eye of the student inward upon himself, and teach him how to read his own heart.

7.  Pray with and for your students.
