Teach Like a Champ
Adams, Caralee
Instructor, v120 n5 p42-45 Spr 2011
Doug Lemov didn't set out to write a book about the tools of the teaching craft. Working as a managing director of a group of urban charter public schools, he was just trying to get some answers for his teachers. They were hungry for tips on how to really engage kids and solve problems that were getting in the way of their teaching. Lemov observed great teachers in action and shared their best techniques. As more people started to ask about his research, he figured he was on to something. The resulting book, "Teach Like a Champion: 49 Techniques That Put Students on the Path to College," gives teachers practical ideas on how to run a more efficient, inspired, and joyful class. His simple yet powerful techniques help focus kids' attention and squeeze the most learning out of every minute in the classroom. Lemov is founder of School Performance, an Albany-based nonprofit that provides diagnostic assessments, performance data analysis, and academic consulting to high-performing charter schools. In his book, Lemov has identified 49 classroom techniques that make all the difference.
