Product Description

Platitudes about what constitutes good teaching--"Expect the most from students every day" or "Teach kids, not content"--are nice, but how are they put into action? What should teachers actually be doing in order to help their students?

Teach like a Champion provides teachers with 49 actionable techniques they can use to draw the most out of their classes. Practical, dealing with issues that often fall beneath the radar of the current educational theory trends, this book focuses on the everyday, seemingly "little" elements of teaching-from passing out papers to pacing to praise to speaking style. An included DVD-ROM (Windows 03 or later / Mac OS 10.1 or later) features real-life examples of teachers illustrating the main points in the book. 330 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

Teach Like a Champion offers effective teaching techniques to help teachers, especially those in their first few years, become champions in the classroom. These powerful techniques are concrete, specific, and are easy to put into action the very next day. Training activities at the end of each chapter help the reader further their understanding through reflection and application of the ideas to their own practice.

Among the techniques:

  • Technique #1: No Opt Out. How to move students from the blank stare or stubborn shrug to giving the right answer every time.
  • Technique #35: Do It Again. When students fail to successfully complete a basic task—from entering the classroom quietly to passing papers around—doing it again, doing it right, and doing it perfectly, results in the best consequences.
  • Technique #38: No Warnings. If you're angry with your students, it usually means you should be angry with yourself. This technique shows how to effectively address misbehaviors in your classroom.

The print version includes a DVD of 25 video clips of teachers demonstrating the techniques in the classroom. E-book customers: please note that details on how to access the content from the DVD may be found in the e-book Table of Contents. Please see the section: "How to Access DVD Contents"

Editorial Reviews

"If school districts are going to demand so much of teachers, then the least superintendents and schools of education can provide is basic tools. There is more power in effective training than there could ever be in threats." (Boston Globe, March 23, 2010)
