5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent Resource, 30 April 2012
This review is from: Teach Like a Champion Field Guide: A Practical Resource to Make the 49 Techniques Your Own (Jossey-Bass Teacher) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When you pick up this large format paperback book, it feels like it is worth buying! Inside is a DVD which has a very helpful set of video clips that support and demonstrate the techniques used in the book. This volume is really a workbook that supports and expounds the original book written by the author. However this volume can be used without the original in a very hands-on fashion.
The only negative aspect is that the language and video clips are American, and there are some things that would not be acceptable in a British school, but this does not overly detract from the good practises demonstrated.
The techniques detailed support a modern pedagogy and there will be something that every teacher can take on board. It is particularly good at demonstrating practical ways of improving your questioning technique.
Overall I must recommend this book as a refreshing source of ideas for improving the delivery of lessons for any teacher. For British teachers this man is clearly the American equivalent of a Dylan Wiliam, except his ideas are perhaps a little more orthodox.
