Summary Description

Most people enjoy watching athletes and musicians perform in a competition or in a concert, when their talents are on full display.  But if we really wanted to see greatness in action, we would instead spend our time watching their practice sessions.

Our summary of Practice Perfect, by Doug Lemov, Erica Woolway, and Katie Yezzi, puts the art of practice front and center.  It shows that anyone, in any field, can come to appreciate that practice makes champions.

Lemov is the author of the best-selling book Teach Like a Champion and helped found Uncommon Schools, a non-profit school management organization, where he directs their project on effective teaching practices.  Woolway is the chief academic officer for the Taxonomy of Effective Teaching Practices at Uncommon Schools.  Yezzi is the founding principal of Troy Prep Elementary School in New York. 

In this summary, they demonstrate that deliberately engineered and designed practice can revolutionize our most important activities.  The “how to” rules we will outline will make you better in virtually every area of your life and career.
