My dad gave me this book a few summers ago and I have recently been reading, rereading, and studying several sections of it.
This book, Teach Like a Champion by Doug Lemov has “49 Techniques That Put Students on the Path to College.”
I picked nine strategies, wrote them on index cards and plan to hang them near my desk as personal reminders.
They all come from the chapters called “Setting High Expectations,” “Engaging Students in Your Lessons,” and “Setting and Maintaining High Behavioral Expectations.”
Yes, nineteen years of teaching and I’m still learning (and making study tools).
It’s interesting stuff.
Apparently, I am a nerd.
I should be writing an IEP, my IPDP, or my Quarterly Assessment, but this kind of school work is what really matters.
