This 24 slide Power Point examines the best teaching practices instructors can use with students based on Marzano's Instructional Strategies. How students learn and how to grab the students' attention is discussed as well as how the brain retains information. Working memory is compared to long term memory. Who is responsible for the students’ long term memory is determined.
As teachers, we have all asked this question at one time or another, “What strategies actually affect student achievement?” Eleven successful strategies that work effectively with all students including those considered to be "at risk" are presented. They are:
1) Identifying Similarities and Differences
2) Graphic Organizers
3) Summarizing and Note Taking
4) External Rewards
5) Homework and Practice
6) Non-linguistic Representations
7) Cooperative Learning
8) Setting Objectives
9) Providing Feedback
10) Generating and Testing Hypotheses
11) Cues, Questions and Advance Organizers
