I will check, but I very much doubt that Greene is actually in favor of Doug Lemov's teaching methods or anything like that, and in fact I think Dienne is attributing ideas to Dave that are diametrically opposed to what he really thinks. Perhaps it's those typos?
Would Dave mind sending her a corrected copy?
Will post more after checking.
I've now skimmed pretty much the entire book. I see no typos or sloppy editing. Greene does quote Lemov from time to time, but some of the excerpts criticize Lemov's and some of them are approving. Perhaps the garbled copy caused the confusion. I personally think Lemov's teaching approach is scary.
