Doug Lemov

This companion publication to 2010's Teach Like a Champion sets out 49 techniques that support effective classroom teaching in order to help teachers master the practice. It was primarily based on thousands of hours of video and in-person observations of teachers who have successfully helped their pupils to improve.

The activities are set over three stages: learning the techniques, preparing to use the techniques, and actual practice. The Field Guide includes 30 new video clips of teaching champions, and analysis from Lemov explaining what the teachers are doing right. Some of the techniques appear very basic, but are nonetheless important in their overall effect when combined with other techniques.

It also includes charts for teachers to track their own progress and to record feedback from colleagues.

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
