'A Coach's Guide to Teaching' - A conversation with Doug Lemov
The best-selling author of 'Teach Like a Champion' and 'Practice Perfect' makes a welcome return to the podcast and this time he has a new book out all about coaching 'A Coach's Guide to Teaching'.
Doug brings his considerable knowledge about the science of classroom teaching to the sports coaching world to support coaches on the court and field.
The book is written brilliantly and makes core scientific concepts accessible and practical.... it is prepared to explore ideas from a range of theoretical perspectives to open discussion about some key areas that are still hotly debated today.
You will hear me exploring some of this with Doug as some of the ideas don't necessarily map on to my perspective on coaching but I do my best to give them a fair representation. After all, I wouldn't want to be accused of not being balanced.
This is a great Christmas present to yourself so go ahead and get stuck in.
