 Marzano's 9 Strategies 
 Researched Based Strategies To Use Every Day

This is the best framework of researched based strategies I have seen in 40 years.

This chart tells you what the strategy is, why we use it, and what it looks like in the classroom.

This is a must have chart you use in your planning every day.

Plus it tells us the percentage of the retention of knowledge that is retained by the students
over the classes that do not use it.

THE 7 ESSENTIAL PRINCIPALS of INNOVATIVE LEARNING


7 PRINCIPALS:
1. Learners have to be at the center of what happens in the classroom.
2. Learning is a social practice and can’t happen alone
3. Emotions are an integral part of learning.  
4. Learners are different.
5. Students need to be stretched, but not too much.
6. Assessment should be for learning, not of learning
7. Learning needs to be connected across disciplines and reach out into the real world.
 
 Check out this informative article.  
 It has excellent ideas to reflect on and to make part of your professional practice.
