Format: Paperback
I have been a classroom teacher for 25 years. In that time, I have seen many trends in educational philosophy. Finally, Marzano has written a book that addresses research based methods of instruction that actually are proven to increase student achievement. He addresses three key areas: School-Level Factors, Teacher-Level Factors, Student-Level Factors, and a section on how to implement these factors into classoom instruction. Marzano states,"Thirty-five years of research provides remarkably clear guidance as to the steps schools can take to be highly effective in enhancing student achievement."I have found that the researched based information that Marzano provides about each of these key areas to be invaluable in the instruction of our students. This book is a must read for all serious educators.

As our district's curriculum and instructional director, sometimes it is hard to get my principals on board with change. This book is an invaluable resource for data and tables to share with principals.

This book really and truly impacts my everyday classroom experience. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to implement positive school reform. I read this book in its entirety. It was a required read for my Ed.S in Teacher Leader from the University of West Alabama. It was an enjoyable and meaningful read. I will read it again and implement the author's concepts into my own school effectively. Get this book you will not regret it!
