Can Teachers Be Taught to Teach Better?

According to Doug Lemov, "teaching is not just instinctive." He believes it to be something that consists of techniques that can be taught. This is why you go to school. You go to learn to become the best teacher you can be. Little lessons help you to improve. In the article, he described a teacher who gave some advice. She said that you should not to do more then one thing when giving directions. It helps the children focus on what your announcing and not zone off. She was right.

You can always be taught to do something better because we are always trying to learn how to be beter people. Teaching is an instinct. Not everyone has the patience to want to help someone, but it is a step-to-step process. Even a teacher is constantly learning from other teachers and students.
