Advice for starting up a new MTG group?

So one of the things that's always pretty close to my heart is people teaching new players to Magic with the rest of us. After all, we were all new once, and if not for some generous people when I started there's no way I'd be where I am today.

With that said, I want to highlight one of these causes that was recently shared to Reddit by user /s4svendetta. They've been working to teach students how to play, and I think it's a cause worth sharing.

Hello, I am a teacher, and am starting a MTG club at my school. I'm new to the game myself, only been playing casually for a year. I really like the idea of using MTG to help give authenticity to basic facts knowledge and even reading comprehension.

If you haven't seen the full post, you can find it here. I'm sure they'd appreciate all the advice you can share.
