"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)
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!!
For beginning or seasoned teachers. I loved being able to say, "I do that." I also learned ways to improve my craft and discovered new technics I had never heard of. AWESOME!!
