Back cover copy

A comprehensive resource filled with the techniques that have proven it is possible to close the achievement gap. In this book, 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. Praise for "Teach Like a Champion" "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 "Doug Lemov's "Teach Like a Champion" is a breakthrough book that is both visionary and comprehensive. If you are a teacher who wants to increase the academic success of your students, you should read this book. If you are an administrator with the same goal, you must get this book into the hands of your teachers!" --Lee Canter, author of "Assertive Discipline" "Doug Lemov has captured in one place the specific, practical techniques used by the best teachers in some of our country's best urban schools. Any teacher, principal, or policymaker who is interested in what it takes on a classroom level to close the achievement gap should read this book." --Dacia Toll, co-chief executive officer of Achievement First "All teachers should own at least two copies of Doug Lemov's "Teach Like a Champion," one for home and one for school, so that they are never far from the roadmap to excellence that lies within. Lemov pulls back the curtain to reveal that the apparent wizardry of America's most successful teachers is really a collection of clearly explainable and learnable techniques. This will certainly be one of the most influential and helpful books that any teacher ever owns." --Dave Levin, co-founder of KIPP(Knowledge Is Power Program)
