Check for Understanding

Train the Trainer Workshop

December 13-14, 2018  

Recognizing the difference between “I taught it” and “They learned it” is one of the most important challenges that a teacher faces. Consistently and effectively Checking for Understanding allows teachers to both uncover and respond to student misunderstandings.

Join facilitators, Doug Lemov and the Teach Like a Champion Team, to prepare to deliver high quality training on Check for Understanding. Ensuring all students master rigorous content requires that teachers engineer their classrooms to Check for Understanding systematically and effectively. This workshop will help leaders equip teachers to expose student misunderstandings intentionally and to respond to error productively.


  • Gathering data effectively through Teach Like a Champion 2.0 techniques including Standardize the Format, Tracking Not Watching, Show Me, Reject Self Report, Targeted Questioning, and Affirmative Checking.
  • Creating a safe and productive environment in which students reveal their misconceptions by creating a Culture of Error via Normalize Error, Withhold the Answer, Manage the Tell, and Praise Risk Taking.
  • Responding immediately to student misunderstandings through Plan for Error, Show Call, and Own and Track.


Schools that purchase the license will receive a link to download copies of all workshop materials, as well as additional training materials, including:

  • Full description of all techniques, methods, and practice activities covered in the training
  • PowerPoint deck used in the workshop
  • All video clips shown and talking points for each clip
  • Additional clips with complete talking points
  • Lesson plans for school-wide and individual PD activities to help leaders train teachers
  • Aligned coaching tools and other materials to maximize teacher development


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 2.0 techniques back at their schools.


London Irish Centre, 50-52 Camden Square, London, United Kingdom NW1 9XB
