To ensure all students succeed academically, champion teachers deliver instruction that maximizes Ratio, or the number of students who actively participate and the depth of the thinking they do. Achieving rigor for all students is the central goal of the Common Core standards. Join facilitators Doug Lemov, Erica Woolway, Darryl Williams, and Hilary Lewis to prepare to deliver high quality training on Ratio.
The workshop explores three pathways teachers can follow to increase breadth of participation and depth of thinking: Writing, Discussion, and Questioning. Participants will leave equipped to train teachers on how to achieve the twin goals of all students participating fully and all students thinking deeply.
YOU WILL GAIN:
- A framework for analyzing student engagement in a classroom—Participation Ratio and Think Ratio.
- An understanding of the critical role of knowledge–the content pre-requisite–in achieving Ratio
- Practice activities that will broaden teachers’ capacity to increase breadth and depth of participation in their classrooms
WE WILL ANALYZE AND PRACTICE:
- Teach Like a Champion 2.0 techniques to increase Ratio through writing: Everybody Writes, Art of the Sentence, Show Call.
- Teach Like a Champion 2.0 techniques to increase Ratio through discussion: Habits of Discussion, Turn and Talk, Batch Process.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
Our workshops are delivered using a “Train the Trainer” model. We prepare instructional leaders and school leadership teams to deliver excellent training on Teach Like a Champion 2.0 techniques. Schools typically send a team of two to five instructional leaders and teachers in order to build capacity within school teams to lead and implement Teach Like a Champion techniques back at their schools.
