These tips on clarity are for preaching, but would often apply (at least many of them) in teaching contexts. Obviously, the classroom is a different forum but the listeners are some of the same group. Of course, a student can ask a question if they get confused – and are brave and/or interested enough to do so. And students have texts they have (hopefully) read in preparation which should ease access to one’s teaching. Plus they will study the content and write a paper or take an exam. But despite these differences, I think many lectures could benefit from the application of a few of these principles.
