I am halfway through reading “Teach like a Champion” and already I know it is one of the most accurate, relevant and interesting books of my whole teaching career.
In it, the author Doug Lemov has
examined the top teachers in a catchment area in the US, and has carefully analysed and dissected their strengths into 49 techniques.
These techniques are all accessible, all explained clearly (with DVD clips, in case you aren’t completely sure) and I can already see the impact they are having in my lessons. It is a phenomenal book, and has actually explained events and habits that have formed over the past eleven years as a teacher; why some things work well, and how to refine simple skills to get an even better result. I would urge any employee in education to invest in this book, as it will open up a world that you think you knew, only in much more detail.
I am extraordinarily motivated by the message it provides overall, and will be reflecting on this over the summer months, with a view to implementing some of its techniques school-wide from September onwards. Watch this space!

If the title seems silly, don't let that keep you from buying this book. This is the best book on teaching I have ever read. Using these very straight forward and well described techniques has created a dramatic positive shift in the climate of my classroom. The is THE HELP I have been looking for in countless trainings, grad courses, and other books. I love teaching again!

A grab-bag of practical, common-sense techniques. Not terribly engrossing or thought-provoking with exception to periodic comments, and many of his technique labels are a bit too kitschy for useful ... Read full review

I wish that Doug Lemov's Teach Like a Champion had been around when I was getting my teaching degree. Most of the books that I read in my graduate courses centered on theory -- not that theory and ... Read full review

I really loved this book and actually began using some of the teaching practices long before I knew the history of Uncommon Schools. Life would, of course, bring me down the road where I had the ... Read full review
