The most important condition for pedagogical mastery is pedagogical erudition. “If you want to teach others you should study tor a long time.” – H. Skovoroda said. Encyclopaedic knowledge is the leading characteristic of a teacher’s erudition, since pupils can ask a question from any sphere, so teachers performed the exercise “ERUDIT” – a blitz poll on various activities.
