Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development
Implementing the action steps from ASCD's best-seller "The Art and Science of Teaching" is much easier when you use this in-depth resource for workshops, professional learning communities, teacher training, and self-help. Hundreds of samples, guidelines, checklists, and activities help teachers in all grades and subjects become instant experts on Robert Marzano's breakthrough framework for effective instruction. A series of 25 modules equips any classroom teacher with a logical planning sequence that ensures you: (1) Establish learning goals and track progress; (2) Help students interact with new knowledge, test hypotheses, and develop deep understandings; (3) Engage students and plan good lessons and units; (4) Establish good classroom management and effective relationships with students; and (5) Communicate high expectations for learning. Each module consists of easy-to-follow steps that include: (1) Reflective self-assessments; (2) Concrete examples in various grades and subjects; (3) Multiple strategies for enacting your plan; and (4) A quick review to ensure that the learning from the handbook sticks.
