Teach Like a Champion (Systems and Routines): 1-day Workshop

When:  Mar 26, 2024 from 08:30 to 16:00 (ET)

ACEL is proud to support teachers and leaders with a Teach Like a Champion: Systems and Routines: 1-day Workshop. Former teacher, principal and charter-school founder Doug Lemov authored Teach Like a Champion after observing teachers getting exceptional results. He realised by naming and describing successful teacher techniques, coupled with short, focused video clips of the techniques in action, the practices could be easily shared with others.

This program, Teach Like a Champion: Systems and Routines, focuses on the techniques that champion teachers use to design, install and maintain systems and routines that students do automatically and with little-to-no teacher prompting, such as ‘strong start’, ‘cold call’ and ‘exit tickets’ or techniques for participating in a discussion. Upon completing this program, you will be equipped to return to your school and implement Teach Like a Champion in your classroom and have the materials to train others in the techniques from Teach Like a Champion: Systems and Routines.
