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. Slightly Imperfect.
