The Critical Concepts Workshop

Centennial, Colorado | December 5–6, 2017

Research indicates that most standards documents articulate far more content than can be taught in the time available to K–12 teachers. In response, analysts at Marzano Research sought to identify, as objectively as possible, a focused set of Critical Concepts (articulated as proficiency scales) for each K–12 grade level in the areas of English language arts, mathematics, and science.

This workshop is designed for curriculum leaders and leadership teams who are interested in delivering Marzano Research’s Critical Concepts professional development modules in their schools and/or districts. Slide presentations, handouts, and notes that can be used to deliver the modules are included in the cost of this workshop.

Learning Outcomes

  • Learn how to work with the Critical Concepts proficiency scales in your school or district.
  • Gain access to Marzano Research’s slide presentations, handouts, and notes for use in your school or district.
  • Delve deeper into standards-based grading topics such as creating proficiency scales, customizing proficiency scales, aligning assessments, and transforming feedback and grading practices.
