I've heard a rumor from my dad that Einstein was a boring professor. Is there any truth to this? In my experience, my most brilliant professors tend to be boring lecturers. In my last philosophy class my professor was this very smart, analytical man who puts the entire class to sleep. He doesn't seem faze by it and continues lecturing. When I took Biology my professor was this old man who kept us interested by showing us this quirky experimental devices he conjured up. One is a chainsaw he made that's supposed to be really sharp then he suddenly stuck his hand in it to our surprise. If you're a professor/high school teacher what do you think is the most effective way of keeping the class awake and interested on an otherwise possibly boring topic?
