Art and Science of Teaching : a Comprehensive Framework for Effective Instruction (07 Edition)by Robert J. Marzano
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Though classroom instructional strategies should clearly be based on sound science and research, knowing when to use them and with whom is more of an art. In The Art and Science of Teaching: A Comprehensive Framework for Effective Instruction, author Robert J. Marzano presents a model for ensuring quality teaching that balances the necessity of research-based data with the equally vital need to understand the strengths and weaknesses of individual students. For classroom lessons to be truly effective, educators must examine every component of the teaching process with equal resolve. Filled with charts, rubrics, and organizers, this methodical, user-friendly guide will help teachers examine and develop their knowledge and skills, so they can achieve that dynamic fusion of art and science that results in exceptional teaching and outstanding student achievement.
Book News Annotation:
Consultant Marzano (also education, Cardinal Stritch U.) understands that classroom teachers strive to use instructional strategies based on sound science and research, but have difficulty choosing one of the many theories and applications currently available and also cannot always tailor a theory or application to meet the needs of an individual student. He presents a model teachers can use on the spot to diagnose needs and ask appropriate questions of themselves, starting with what they can do to establish and communicate learning goals, track student progress and celebrate success. Other model-questions address helping students deepen their understanding of new knowledge, engaging students, establishing and maintaining classroom rules and procedures, communicating expectations and organizing lessons into a cohesive unit. The result is a strong self-study guide along with a good text for inservice or discussion groups. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
