Product Description

When Robert Marzano and his team published Classroom Instruction That Works in 2001, they gave educators a powerful framework for understanding education research—a framework that answered the question: Which strategies work in the classroom? More recently, a team of researchers at McREL International updated Classroom Instruction That Works, using new research to ensure that the framework and its strategies are truly our “best bets” for raising achievement.

But what many educators are looking for is the how. How do we put the power of the research to work in our classrooms? How do we adapt the generalizations in the research to meet the needs of our students? The answer is: “With the right tools.”

Tools for Classroom Instruction That Works gives educators over 50 classroom-ready tools that make it easy to put the research-based recommendations from Classroom Instruction That Works into practice tomorrow. Organized according to the renowned Classroom Instruction That Works framework, this addition to the award-winning Tools for Today’s Educators series is the simplest and most practical way to ensure higher levels of student achievement in every classroom.
