Teaching Channel Talks 44: Teach Like a Champion 3.0

August 11, 2021 / by Teaching Channel

The wait is almost over! Teach Like a Champion 3.0, the long-awaited update to Doug Lemov’s guide to best classroom practices, will be released on September 14th, 2021 (although you can preorder now!). In this episode, Wendy sits down with Doug to discuss the changes he's made since writing Teach Like a Champion ten years ago and how the switch to teaching online has changed the teaching profession forever. You'll also hear about the extensive cognitive science research that anchors all of the practices recommended in Teach Like a Champion 3.0 so that educators understand the "why" and "how" of everything they do.
