Salary Advance Courses for Teachers | Jump Into PD

HBM 1699 (1 unit)

“After asking a question of the class, most teachers wait about a second before taking an answer” (Lemov, 2021). Teachers, if you have never considered how the amount of wait time you give affects your classroom culture, this series is for you.

In this third course in the series, participants will explore chapters 6 and 7 of “Teach Like a Champion 3.0” by Doug Lemov. We will dive into the next two sets of immediately implementable techniques coined by the author involving pacing and building ratio through questioning that are used by teachers all over the country. These techniques involve concepts like making your transitions more exciting, hacking human psychology to create an exciting sense of urgency in your classroom, retrieval practice techniques like cold calling and call and response, and more. This book is a MUST read for new teachers!

*Note that this is part 3 of a 6 course series. Although it is not required that you complete these courses in order, it is highly recommended you start with part 1 and end with part 6.
