Book Description :

In 2001, Classroom Instruction That Works inspired more than a million teachers to refine their approach to teaching by asking and answering these questions: What works in education? How do we know? How can educational research find its way into the classroom? How can we apply it to help individual students? This all-new, completely revised second edition of that classic text pulls from years of research, practice, and results to reanalyze and reevaluate the nine instructional strategies that have the most positive effects on teaching and learning: * 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 * Generating and testing hypotheses A new framework organizes these strategies in preparation for instructional planning, and it highlights the point that all of the strategies are effective and should be used to complement one another. Each teaching 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. Whether you are coming to this book for the first time or are a veritable expert in the nine strategies, this second edition will help you develop your instructional approach, broaden your influence as a teacher, and enhance the learning potential of all your students. We haven't reinvented the wheel. We've taken classroom instruction that works and made it thrive.

Book Description :

Technology is ubiquitous, and its potential to transform learning is immense. The first edition of Using Technology with Classroom Instruction That Works answered some vital questions about 21st century teaching and learning: What are the best ways to incorporate technology into the curriculum? What kinds of technology will best support particular learning tasks and objectives? How does a teacher ensure that technology use will enhance instruction rather than distract from it? This revised and updated second edition of that best-selling book provides fresh answers to these critical questions, taking into account the enormous technological advances that have occurred since the first edition was published, including the proliferation of social networks, mobile devices, and web-based multimedia tools. It also builds on the up-to-date research and instructional planning framework featured in the new edition of Classroom Instruction That Works, outlining the most appropriate technology applications and resources for all nine categories of effective instructional strategies: * 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 * Generating and testing hypotheses Each strategy-focused chapter features examples--across grade levels and subject areas, and drawn from real-life lesson plans and projects--of teachers integrating relevant technology in the classroom in ways that are engaging and inspiring to students. The authors also recommend dozens of word processing applications, spreadsheet generators, educational games, data collection tools, and online resources that can help make lessons more fun, more challenging, and--most of all--more effective.

Book Description :

What can teachers do to ensure that English language learners (ELLs) understand academic content while developing their English language skills? To answer this question, authors Jane Hill and Cynthia Björk have created this workshop facilitator s guide based on recommendations from the 2006 book Classroom Instruction That Works with English Language Learners. Educators can use the guide to create and conduct two-day workshops for mainstream ELL instructors at all levels. The guide includes in-depth discussions of such vital classroom strategies as homework and practice, summarization and note taking, and use of nonlinguistic representations, among many others. For each strategy, the authors provide a summary of the research, detailed examples of how to modify the strategy for use with ELLs at different levels of language acquisition, and activities and worksheets to help teachers fully understand the reasoning behind the strategy. An accompanying PowerPoint presentation for use in workshops can be accessed online at the McREL Web site and is reprinted in the guide. Accommodating English language learners is one of the greatest challenges educators face today. Just as different levels of fluency require different approaches, so too do different backgrounds and languages. This practical, research-based guide gives teachers the support they need to help ELLs thrive alongside their English-dominant peers.

Book Description :

Background: The current study updates and extends the original research synthesis of effective instructional strategies presented in "Classroom Instruction that Works" ("CITW"; Marzano, Pickering, & Pollock, 2001). That work identified nine instructional strategies for improving academic achievement and synthesized findings from previous meta-analyses around each. The present study extends and updates this original work. Purpose: The purpose of this review is to update the research base for the nine teaching strategies addressed by "Classroom Instruction that Works": (1) Identifying similarities and differences; (2) Summarizing and note taking; (3) Reinforcing effort and providing recognition; (4) Homework and practice; (5) Nonlinguistic representations; (6) Cooperative learning; (7) Setting objectives and providing feedback; (8) Generating and testing hypotheses; and (9) Cues, questions, and advance organizers. One rationale for an update is to take into account the work that has been done by educational researchers since 1998 on each of the nine strategies. As educational research methods have become more rigorous, partly in response to initiatives from the U.S. Department of Education, a larger body of experimental and quasi-experimental studies has been published. This has resulted in a change in how empirical research is conceptualized, conducted, and interpreted. Arguably, these advances in methodology provide a body of research with improved precision and more accurate impact estimates. The current study leverages these advancements to generate an updated effect estimate for each strategy. In addition, synthesizing more recent literature permits a close look at how the nine strategies are currently being operationalized and studied. Study Sample: Literature search protocols were designed to identify relevant empirical literature and descriptive/theoretical literature around each of the nine strategies published between 1998 and 2008. The search focused on articles published in peer-reviewed journals in order to ensure quality standards were met. To identify study reports with direct relevance to student achievement, only those studies that included measures of academic content knowledge and skills were selected. Research Design: Statistical Synthesis; Data Collection and Analysis: Determination of the appropriate analytic method of synthesis was conducted on a case-by-case basis for each of the nine instructional strategies. Two methods were used--meta-analysis and literature review. Meta-analysis was used when the research team determined that sufficient quantitative data was available to estimate a robust effect size. Whenever a category contained fewer than four independent primary studies, a literature review was conducted. The literature review provides a narrative description of identified studies as well as a description of context and findings. Unlike the meta-analysis, the literature review does not provide a composite effect for the strategy because there is no insurance against the possibility that findings from identified studies may be "outliers" from the theoretical true effect of the intervention. Because of this, a meta-analysis was conducted whenever a sufficient number of studies was available. Findings: Chapters on each of the nine strategies give effect sizes related to student achievement. Although the effect sizes are lower than those reported by Marzano et al. (2001), a more rigorous method was employed in the present study meta-analysis. Conclusion: The effect sizes found for the nine instructional strategies suggest that they have potentially great practical significance in education. This report is divided into ten chapters, as follows: (1) Methods (Charles Igel, Helen Apthorp, Andrea Beesley); (2) Identifying Similarities and Differences (Helen Apthorp); (3) Summarizing and Note Taking (Charles Igel, Trudy Clemons, Helen Apthorp, Susie Bachler); (4) Reinforcing Effort and Providing Recognition (Trudy Clemons, Charles Igel, Andrea Beesley); (5) Homework and Practice (Charles Igel, Trudy Clemons, Tedra Clark); (6) Nonlinguistic Representations (Trudy Clemons, Charles Igel, Sarah Gopalani); (7) Cooperative Learning (Charles Igel); (8) Setting Objectives and Providing Feedback (Charles Igel, Trudy Clemons, Helen Apthorp); (9) Generating and Testing Hypotheses (Jessica Allen); and (10) Cues, Questions, and Advance Organizers (Trudy Clemons, Charles Igel, Jessica Allen). This report contains the following appendices: (1) Coding Instrument; (2) Summary of Intervention Characteristics by Article; and (3) Summary of Achievement Lessons and Intervention Characteristics by Article.
