Description

Details

Academic standards call for increased rigor, but simply raising complexity is not enough. Students must also be able to deliberately revise their own knowledge. They need to know how to use visual tools, written work, and academic notebooks to make revisions that help to deepen their understanding of the content. Based on the earlier work of Dr. Robert J. Marzano, Revising Knowledge: Classroom Techniques to Help Students Examine Their Deeper Understanding explores explicit techniques for mastering a crucial strategy of instructional practice: teaching students to revise their knowledge. It includes:
  • Explicit steps for implementation
  • Recommendations for monitoring if students are able to revise their knowledge
  • Adaptations for students who struggle, have special needs, or excel in learning
  • Examples and non-examples 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

Revising Knowledge provides practical techniques for implementation and for monitoring student use of revision strategies. In addition, having both elementary and secondary examples provides teachers at all levels the opportunity to ‘see’ their own classrooms.”

—Rebecca Snyder, 2009 Pennsylvania Teacher of the Year

“I have been teaching for 30 years and I still found new techniques in Revising Knowledge that I will try in my classroom. The Common Core techniques, which really work in the classroom, are a great addition.”

—Wanda Lacy, 2013 Tennessee Teacher of the Year

“This book is an excellent resource for those teachers who are struggling with the shift from the more objective, isolated principles of the past to the more subjective, integrated methods that require students to revise knowledge before they can move on to hypothesizing and other higher-order skills.”

—Amy I. Weems, 2013 Louisiana Teacher of the Year
