Achieve classroom greatness with updated Champion techniques

Teaching is one of the most important jobs in the world and often one of the hardest. Excellent teachers continually strive to learn and improve their craft, and no matter how good a teacher is, there′s always room for improvement. Teach Like a Champion became a global bestseller because it offered concrete, engaging, easy–to–implement techniques teachers could use to keep their students engaged, focused, and learning. Teach Like a Champion 2.0 compiles the feedback gathered from real teachers in real classrooms around the world to deliver an updated set of techniques, made even more effective by the continual fine–tuning of daily classroom use. Effective and informative for both new teachers and classroom veterans, Teach Like a Champion 2.0 describes how to:

  • ADJUST CLASSIC TEACHING TECHNIQUES TO BE EVEN MORE EFFECTIVE
  • IMPLEMENT ENTIRELY NEW TECHNIQUES THAT KEEP STUDENTS ON TRACK
  • TRANSLATE THEORY INTO ACTION WITH VIDEO DEMONSTRATIONS

"Teach Like a Champion 2.0 made me a better teacher. The rigor, depth, and applicability of each technique Doug shares immediately allowed me to improve the teaching I do with school leaders, teachers, and kids. TLaC 2.0 builds seamlessly from the first edition going deeper on some key concepts and introducing us to a host of new methods."
Dave Levin, cofounder, KIPP

"Like the fantastic teachers who have informed this book, author Doug Lemov is never satisfied and is constantly pushing himself and others to a higher and higher level. Teach Like a Champion 2.0 is a must–read for those in pursuit of ensuring their students learn at the highest levels, including those who read Doug′s first amazing book!"
Wendy Kopp, founder, Teach For America; chief executive officer and cofounder, Teach For All

"I love two things about Doug Lemov and the Uncommon Schools team: a relentless focus on student learning, and a dedication to the proposition that the best professional development occurs when teachers learn from teachers. The pages of Teach Like a Champion 2.0 are imbued with both ideals."
Daniel T. Willingham, author, Why Don′t Students Like School? and When Can You Trust the Experts?
