Publisher's Summary

Author Doug Lemov offers the essential tools of the teaching craft so that you can unlock the talent and skill waiting in your students, no matter how many previous classrooms, schools, or teachers have been unsuccessful. This must-have resource is filled with concrete, specific, and actionable classroom teaching techniques that you can start using in your classroom tomorrow.
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.


What the Critics Say

"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)

Where does Teach Like a Champion rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I love the book. I have been teaching for 25 years and recently began to feel confused about teaching. I love change but it seems that the focus now it constant change for the sake of change. This book put so much in perspective. Confirmed many of my beliefs and gave me back joy of my profession!!
