Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
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 book includes a DVD of 25 video clips of teachers demonstrating the techniques in the classroom.

Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent book for an exceptional price. Great delivery by Wal-Mart 01/04/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by **Great techniques, Great value** I've only read through the first few chapters but what I've read sounds like very logical and useful techniques. I like to run a rigorous classroom setting and this was just what I needed to help guide me on the path. I'm sure these strategies will help me with time-management (because there's NEVER enough time it seems). I'm looking forward to putting it all into action. I've already recommended this to a number of teacher-friends.DVD was also very helpful.Great value! 07/04/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Wonderful Book I bought this book, because it is too amazing not to own. I have enjoyed this book and have been implementing these strategies into my classroom. 07/15/2014
