There are three facets that contribute to great teaching in any subject. The teacher must know the content, have pedagogical knowledge, and manage students well. Master teachers know their subject matter so well that they can often answer questions that go beyond the scope of the class and can ask questions that inspire the class to learn more. They gather good labs and other resources that guide the students to a deep understanding of the concepts. They know how to motivate students to get them to give their best effort to the class.
