Problem: How a selected group of Methodist laymen evaluate themselves as Sunday church school teachers. Procedure: A historical review of the evolvement of Methodist laymen as church school teachers furnished the background for the study. Then a survey was made of teachers from fifty churches within the New England Conference of the Methodist Church. A questionnaire was developed around four areas of the teachers' understanding and performance of their roles: the content taught, the methods used, the understanding of the teaching-learning processes, and the teacher-student relationships. The laymen were asked also the source of their criteria for judging a "good" church school teacher, what were the most important qualifications of such a teacher, who should be teachers of church school classes, their reasons for teaching and continuing to teach, their rewards and dissatisfactions in teaching, and their suggestions for improvement of their local church school.
