Workshop Description: 

The implementation of new standards, assessments, and systems of teacher evaluation require us to think more strategically than ever about the inter-relationship among curriculum, assessment and instruction.  Teachers must consider how to effectively connect students to standards through the use of effective instructional strategies.  In this interactive workshop, teachers will develop an understanding of a practical, research-based framework for effective instruction - Marzano's Art and Science of Teaching - to create engaging classrooms that build each student's understanding of important concepts and develop each student's ability to utilize important skills.

Participants Will:

  • Learn and implement instructional strategies that build student engagement and connect students to standards. 
  • Understand which instructional strategies are more and less effective at the beginning of a unit, after key concepts have been taught, and supporting students' on-going inquiry.
  • Clarify the critical distinction between learning goals and learning activities.
  • Understand how Marzano's Art and Science of Teaching framework can be used to guide decisions that clarify which instructional strategies will best support the varied needs of learners.
  • Honor the critical role of reflection and autonomy support to empower teachers to make informed decisions about which instructional strategies will best support each student's learning.
