An excellent book for a principal, teacher librarian, consultant or instructional coach. This book breaks down teaching excellence into techniques which teachers can practice and reflect on. Too many times in my early career I was told, “You need to let them know you are the boss” or “You need to command the room” but with no suggestions on how that was done. You either had it or you didn’t. Well Lemov has studied the teachers who have it and made it into something others can learn. Many of the techniques will be in your repertoire already if you are established as a teacher but I found things I was still able to learn from and think about. An excellent book for helping a beginning teacher to reflect on what is working and what they would like to improve. I’m not big on the ‘path to college’ as our primary goal but beyond that this is one I will be purchasing for my own book shelf.
