Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

In 2001, Classroom Instruction That Works asked a few simple questions and inspired more than a million teachers to refine their approach to teaching. What works in education? How do we know? How can educational research find its way into the classroom? How can we apply it to help individual students?

 

This all-new, completely revised second edition of that classic text draws on the research and developments of the following decade to reanalyze and reevaluate the teaching strategies that have the most positive effect on student learning:

 

• Setting objectives and providing feedback

• Reinforcing effort and providing recognition

• Cooperative learning

• Cues, questions, and advance organizers

• Nonlinguistic representations

• Summarizing and note taking

• Assigning homework and providing practice

• Identifying similarities and differences

• Generating and testing hypotheses

 

These strategies are organized and presented within a framework that is geared toward instructional planning, which highlights the point that all of the strategies are effective and should be used to complement one another. Each strategy is supported with recommended classroom practices, examples of the strategy in use, tips for teaching, and information about using the strategy with today’s learners.

 

Whether you are coming to this book for the first time or are a veritable expert in the nine strategies, this second edition will help you develop your instructional approach, broaden your influence as a teacher, and enhance the learning potential of all your students. We haven’t reinvented the wheel. We’ve taken classroom instruction that works and made it thrive.

This book is the 2nd edition published by McREL Institute and continues the research first reported on by Marzano, PIckering and Pollock in the 1st edition. It is VERY teacher friendly, groups the strategies into 3 categories: Setting the Learning Environment; Accessing Knowledge; Extending Knowledge and provides real-world examples as well as tips for use with "Today's Learners." This is a MUST HAVE for any teacher who is seriously in search of improving his/her instructional practice.

This is a great book for any teacher regardless of where they are in their career. For beginning teachers it is a valuable resource for teaching strategies. For a teacher in the middle of their career, it is a good tune-up. For a veteran teacher it is a good resource to understanding how teaching is changing and fresh ideas.

I would recommend it to anyone interested in instruction and teaching. I especially recommend it for teachers. It provides the research of why the strategies work and what to do with them.

I was told to get "Classroom Instruction That Works: Research-Based Strategies for Increasing Student Achievement" but what I didn't realize is that the 2nd Ed. IS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT BOOK!!!! 1st Ed. with Marzano was the one I needed. I just figured that the 2nd. Ed. of a book was basically the same book with a few changes & additions, but not in this case. This may be a good book, but find out if you need the Marzano version before actual purchase!!!!!
