Course DescriptionThis course follows up on the original Classroom Instruction that Works by Robert Marzano, et al. It follows on the decade of research and developments over the last ten years following the first text, and re-analyzes and re-evaluates the teaching strategies that have the most positive effect on student learning. Topics include setting objectives and providing feedback, reinforcing effort and providing recognition, cooperative learning, cues, questions, and advance organizers, nonlinguistic representations, summarizing and note taking, assigning homework and providing practice, identifying similarities and differences, and generating and testing hypotheses. These strategies are organized and presented within a framework that is geared toward instructional planning, highlighting the point that all of the strategies are effective and should be used to complement one another. Each strategy is supported with recommended classroom practices, examples of the strategy in use, tips for teaching, and information about using the strategy with today’s learners.
