Details

Academic standards call for increased rigor, but simply raising complexity is not enough. Students must know how to effectively interact with new knowledge. To do that, they must be able to summarize what they’ve read, analyze text for specific characteristics, and create organized, succinct written works that demonstrate a deep understanding of the content. As educators develop expertise in teaching these skills, students become adept at recording and representing knowledge, both linguistically and nonlinguistically, helping them retain the critical information. Recording & Representing Knowledge: Classroom Techniques to Help Students Accurately Organize and Summarize Content explores explicit techniques for mastering this crucial strategy of instructional practice. It includes:
  • Explicit steps for implementation
  • Recommendations for monitoring students’ ability to record and represent knowledge
  • Adaptations for students who struggle, have special needs, or excel in learning
  • Examples and nonexamples from classroom practice
  • Common mistakes and ways to avoid them
The Essentials for Achieving Rigor series of instructional guides helps educators become highly skilled at implementing, monitoring, and adapting instruction. Put it to practical use immediately, adopting day-to-day examples as models for application in your own classroom.

Reviews

“Having studied Marzano’s strategies at my school. I found Recording & Representing Knowledge a more detailed explanation of how to incorporate note taking, summarizing, and synthesizing techniques in my classroom. It is clear, consistent, and . . . flows in a logical, easy-to-follow format.”

—Karyn Collie Dickerson, 2014 North Carolina Teacher of the Year

“I love the graphic organizers and dramatic enactment ideas. I especially liked the Common Mistakes section—they point out things we teachers may not have realized could go wrong or how certain things we usually do are not getting the results we had hoped.”

—Kathy Assini, 2014 New Jersey Teacher of the Year

Recording & Representing Knowledge is about implementing a number of techniques that, when combined, have the potential to greatly increase student achievement. It’s written in a way that is not overwhelming and makes the techniques seem ‘doable.’”

—Jeri Jo Powers, 2008 Kansas Teacher of the Year
