Teach Like a Champion

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

Wonderful stuff!

    Hey Jeff,
    I look at your blog to keep up with any new ideas. It is, as you note, about life long learning. What’s happening? What can I learn today? I had heard of Lemov but I assumed he was offering more pedagogic garbage. But this is interesting stuff. Thanks
