Good morning, class. Today I’m going to teach you about the dangers of eating eggplant.
This word consists of kanji with hiragana attached. Because the hiragana ends with an う sound, you know this word is a verb. The kanji itself means teach so the verb vocab version means to teach. It's also used to mean to tell in a more general sense.

Think about your favorite teacher. Now think about him/her teaching you the following: "Today I'm going to teach you about the ocean (おし)." It is big. Really big. Inside it are krakens, space aliens, and lost cities.
