Learn about argumentation and reasoning skills derived from current standards documents, concrete strategies and processes for teaching those skills directly, and a variety of games and activities that reinforce and engage students in meaningful practice of the skills.
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 for each K–12 grade level in the content areas of English language arts (ELA), mathematics, and science.
Robert J. Marzano’s popular New Art and Science of Teaching framework provides a general model of effective teaching; in this workshop, you’ll explore reading-specific instructional strategies that fit within and extend Dr. Marzano’s framework to encompass five overarching areas of literacy development.
Revolutionize curriculum, instruction, and assessment in your school. Since the release of the Next Generation Science Standards, educators have sought to make the new standards doable and meaningful in a classroom setting.
