Full course description
What distinguishes champion spellers from their peers? Deliberate practice. According to the research of Dr. Anders Ericsson, deliberate practice "entails engaging in a focused, typically planned training activity designed to improve some aspect of performance. During deliberate practice, individuals receive immediate informative feedback on their performance and can then repeat the same or similar tasks with full attention toward changing inferior or incorrect responses, thus improving the identified area of weakness." All champions engage in deliberate practice - champion spellers, athletes, musicians, even surgeons. In this course, leaders will have multiple opportunities to engage in deliberate practice focused on the super levers of leadership, such that they can be champions for their students and teachers.
