Dr. Robert J. Marzano has been a leading expert in education research and professional development in the United States for generations. The New Art and Science of Teaching takes decades of his valuable research and updates his framework to focus less on teacher practice and more on student outcomes. Teachers throughout the U.S. are looking for ways to help students succeed. With this expanded framework, Dr. Marzano presents 43 elements specifically designed to increase student engagement and achievement, along with hundreds of corresponding instructional strategies. Ten design areas help teachers identify the most appropriate classroom strategies to use. The book empowers educators with:
- Access to free study materials and reproducibles
- Practical guidance for putting instructional strategies in place
- Help planning strategies to foster specific learning outcomes
- Insight about student’s mental and behavioral processes
Rigorous new standards require substantial shifts in pedagogy for K–12 educators, but this book puts much-needed guidance into any teacher’s hands. Readers will deepen their understanding of how three categories of teaching (feedback, content, and context) combine to compose reliable roadmap for planning, delivery, and reflection in the ever-changing landscape of 21st-century education.
