Teach Like a Champion 2.0

July 27th, 2015 in Uncategorized

Teach Like a Champion 2.0How do you get students from the blank stare or the constant “I don’t know” to having them tell you the right answer?  According to Teach Like a Champion 2.0, part of the answer is to practice Technique #11: No Opt Out.  This technique is meant to ensure that students are always giving an answer, even if it is an incorrect one.

Find out just how to do it by looking through our 2015 eBook Teach Like a Champion 2.0: 62 Techniques that Put Students on the Path to College (K-12).

The original volume was published in 2010 and featured 49 techniques, and a Field Guide and DVD were published as well.  In the new edition, video and other materials are available online, and instructions for accessing them are included at the end of the eBook.
