Teach Like a Champion offers effective teaching techniques to help teachers, especially those in their first few years, become champions in the classroom. These powerful techniques are concrete, specific, and are easy to put into action the very next day. Training activities at the end of each chapter help the reader further their understanding through reflection and application of the ideas to their own practice.

Among the techniques:

  • Technique #1: No Opt Out. How to move students from the blank stare or stubborn shrug to giving the right answer every time.
  • Technique #35: Do It Again. When students fail to successfully complete a basic task from entering the classroom quietly to passing papers around doing it again, doing it right, and doing it perfectly, results in the best consequences.
  • Technique #38: No Warnings. If you′re angry with your students, it usually means you should be angry with yourself. This technique shows how to effectively address misbehaviors in your classroom.


The print version includes a DVD of 25 video clips of teachers demonstrating the techniques in the classroom. E–book customers: please note that details on how to access the content from the DVD may be found in the e–book Table of Contents. Please see the section: "How to Access DVD Contents"

Review:

Praise for 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
