A Recipe for Great Teaching from @HipHughes

Keith Hughes is best known for his great series of flipped history lesson videos on YouTube. I've often said that I would like to be a student in his classroom. In a recent video he deviated from his usual schedule of posting history lessons and posted advice for student-teachers, new teachers, and anyone else who is wondering what makes a good teacher. Check out his recipe in the video below. My favorite parts of his recipe are "loving your content" and "be yourself."



Applications for Education
I think it would be interesting to see how high school students respond to Keith's recipe. Show them the video and ask them what they think makes a good teacher. Of course, this video is also a great conversation starter for a teacher-education course.
