by Doug Lemov
In his new book “The Coach’s Guide to Teaching” Doug Lemov brings his considerable knowledge about the science of classroom teaching to the sports coaching world. His aim is to create championship calibre coaches on the court and field. What great classroom teachers do is relevant to coaches in profound ways. After all, coaches are at their core teachers.
Lemov knows that coaches face many of the same challenges found in the classroom. However, he believes that the science of learning applies equally to them.
Unfortunately, sometimes coaches and organizations build their teaching on myths and platitudes more than science
Sometimes there isn’t any science applied at all
Intended to offer lessons and guidance that are applicable to coaches of any sporting endeavour including everyone from parent volunteers to professional coaches and private trainers. Doug Lemov brings the powerful science of learning to the arena of sports coaching to create the next generation of championship calibre coaches.
Doug studies high performing teachers and what it is they do that makes them so effective in the classroom.
I recommend that you read The Coach’s Guide to Teaching and see what thoughts it creates.
