    A MUST-READ!!!

    If you’ve ever spent countless hours in your driveway, trying to make 50 free throws in a row, OR if you’ve ever developed serious back and neck pain from hunching over your desk, searching for the right words to convey your thoughts, OR if you’ve ever done anything else obsessive in an effort to become really good at something, then this book will comfort you. First of all, you are not alone. Doug Lemov (author of the essential TEACH LIKE A CHAMPION) and his co-authors Erica Woolway and Katie Yezzi offer numerous examples from various fields (education, soccer, basketball, business, and so on) in which people are trying every day to get better at something. It turns out that although you might be crazy, so are a lot of other people. The other good news is that there is something you can do about this—and by “this,” I mean “improving yourself.” Indeed, the subtitle, “42 Rules for Getting Better at Getting Better,” suggests that there are at least 42 things you can do. The book is full of helpful insights and practical suggestions. In fact, in my day job as a literacy coach, I have used several in the past week! Some of my favorites are that you should explain models (not just assume that people can instantly figure out what is good about them), that you should identify the most important skills needed and focus your energy on them, and that you shouldn’t stop practicing when you become good. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to find the nearest basketball hoop.
