I am very excited to have just received my own copy of “Teach Like a Champion”, by Doug Lemov. It is the first book I have ordered online at Amazon. It arrived in 2 weeks at a very reasonable $15 US.
This book has caused quite a stir. This New York Times article gave readers a good overview.
I Googled: “Teach Like a Champion” blog articles; and got 1010 hits! Conclusion: lots of people are reading and talking about Lemov’s book.
I’m looking forward to reading Rebecca Zook’s review.
Personally, I am loving this book. It is an excellent vehicle to help me review my teaching practice. It is easy to read and understand. The accompanying video clips add another dimension. So far I have read:
Technique 1: No Opt Out
Technique 2: Right is Right
