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.

This book is an excellent summary of the research into practice that has been proven to make a difference. This book should be required reading for every teacher, every administrator, and every school board.

This is one of the textbooks that I utilized in my graduate school program. I found that it was informative on the topic of research, easy to read (both in format and language), and overall a great resource. I have purged my textbooks many times since graduating and this was one of the books that made the cut. I'm glad it was used by my professor and that I have it as a resource for the future.

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.

What Works in Schools: Translating Research into Action. I have read other Marzano books and have found them valuable. Again it is part of my summer reading. The quality of the book was great.

......it's Robert Marzano! His work is legendary and his techniques really do work. Michigan Learnport has an entire course based on this book, so you know he's got it right. I was assigned to read as much Marzano as I can over the summer, and this is one of the books my principal wanted me to read.
