In 2010, former teacher, principal, and charter-school founder Doug Lemov authored Teach Like a Champion. The book offered a whole new perspective on teacher training—one that has yet to be embraced by ed schools. Since its release, thousands of teachers have adopted its framework as their own, becoming better teachers for it. Now Doug Lemov is back with a new edition: Teach Like a Champion 2.0 offers specific, concrete, and actionable techniques for teachers. But what’s so special about these techniques? And where are ed schools falling short? What does it take to teach like a champion in today’s school system?

Join the Fordham Institute on February 10, 2015 from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. for a conversation with Doug Lemov on his new book and a panel discussion on what it takes to prepare our teachers to teach like champions.

Follow the conversation online with @educationgadfly at #TeachingChamp.
