In this episode I speak with Doug Lemov, author of Teach Like A
Champion 3.0 & The Coach's Guide to Teaching. Co-Author of
Teaching in the Online Classroom, Reading Reconsidered and Practice
Doug is the Managing Director of Uncommon School and leads its Teach Like a Champion team, designing and implementing teacher training based on the study of high-performing teachers.
We explore in depth his thinking behind Chapter 1 of Teach Like A Champion 3.0 and the five principles Doug shares. The five principles are:
Principle 1: Understanding Human Cognitive Structure means building Long Term Memory and managing Working Memory
Principle 2: Habits Accelerate Learning
Principle 3: What Students Attend to Is What They Will Learn About
Principle 4: Motivation is Social
Principle 5: Teaching Well Is relationship Building
