    Ep 6: Small Changes Create Cascading Effects with Doug Lemov, author Teach Like a Champion

    Ep 6: Small Changes Create Cascading Effects with Doug Lemov, author Teach Like a Champion

    " We often assume that the size of the solution has to match the size of the problem, and that's not true. Sometimes very small changes can have cascading effects in a complex environment. And suddenly so many things that look like they are larger and more intransigent and more nebulous suddenly fall into place." -- Doug Lemov

    Dana Vignale hosts Doug Lemov on this very special episode of Great Leaders = Great Schools. Doug Lemov is the author of the international bestseller Teach Like a Champion--now in its 3.0 version -- and The Coach's Guide to Teaching. He is the co-author, with TLAC colleagues, of Practice Perfect, Reading Reconsidered, Teaching in the Online Classroom, and Reconnect. Doug also helped found Uncommon Schools and leads its Teach Like a Champion team, designing and
    implementing teacher training based on the study of high-performing teachers. He taught English and history in university, high school, and middle schools levels.
