Teach Like a Champion
"Doug Lemov knows that teachers can create powerful learning environments that will help all students make dramatic progress. With Teach Like A Champion, teachers across the country will be better prepared to wake up on Monday morning and help their students climb the mountain to college. This book provides more evidence that highly effective teaching is learnable—that many more teachers can draw from the tactics of their most successful colleagues in order to realize educational equity." -WENDY KOPP, chief executive officer and founder of Teach For America
"Every teacher should own at least two copies of Doug Lemov’s Teach Like a Champion. One for home and one for school, so that they are never far from the roadmap to excellence that lies within. Lemov pulls back the curtain to reveal that the apparent wizardry of the most successful teachers is really a collection of clearly explainable and learnable techniques. This will certainly be one of the most influential and helpful books that any teacher ever owns."-DAVID LEVIN, co-founder of KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program)
"Doug Lemov's Teach Like a Champion is a breakthrough book that is both visionary and comprehensive. If you are a teacher who wants to increase the academic success of your students, you should read this book. If you are an administrator with the same goal, you must get this book into the hands of your teachers!" –LEE CANTER, author of Assertive Discipline
"Doug Lemov has captured in one place the specific, practical techniques used by the best teachers in some of our country’s best urban schools. Any teacher, principal, or policymaker who is interested in what it takes on a classroom level to close the achievement gap should read this book." –DACIA TOLL, co-chief executive officer of Achievement First
After reading the book, I highly recommend it for both new and veteran teachers.
Mr. Lemov has gathered these techniques to equip all classroom teachers with the tools they need to implement their goals and lead their students effectively.
This book gave me all of the practical knowledge I needed, provided examples on how to use each technique, and then showed me what to do on its DVD!

Well written. I'm in sport coaching and there is much in here that applies just as much to coaching as it does to classroom teaching. After pedagogy is pedagogy after all.Published 19 days ago by David Hadfield
