Review

The twenty-first century classroom needs to shift dramatically to catch up to a new generation of learners coming to our schools every day. Engaging learners is key. The Highly Engaged Classroom will give you specific, exciting, and fresh approaches to genuinely empower your students. The learner moves to the driver's seat as teachers equip them with tools to learn from feedback and navigate their future. --Heidi Hayes Jacobs, executive director of the Curriculum Mapping Institute, president of Curriculum Designers, Inc., Rye, New York

My two daughters are beginning teachers. As such, they need theoretically sound, yet eminently practical guidance for their work with students. The ideas in this book will unquestionably make their classrooms more engaging! --Jay McTighe, educational consultant, Columbia, Maryland

I was hoping for specific strategies or games to use in classroom. Most of the stuff you already know or is common sense.

Reads like a college text book. I want less theory and more practical ideas. I wanted more engagement ideas to implement in a primary classroom. I have learned most of these strategies in Kagan structures classes.

This book does not contain enough examples and is very complicated. Too scholarly. If you are looking for some quick engaging activities for your students this is not the book for you or for them. Book requires a lot of analyzing to get to the meat of the material.

Format: Perfect Paperback
This is one of the best teacher resources that Marzano has written. Marzano clearly defines and outlines the reasons students are not engaged in classrooms. More important, though, are the guidelines for engaging students in deeper thinking and understanding. He walks the classroom practitioner through steps and processes to use immediately for positive student results. This is an amazing resource for educators.

I have read Marzano before and was not too interested or impressed. This has completely changed since I read the last book, because this book has many practical suggestions that I was able to grasp and plan implementing right away. It is well-supported by research.
