About This Book
Any school in the United States can operate at advanced levels of effectiveness—if it is willing to implement what is known about effective schooling. “If we follow the guidance offered from 35 years of research,” says author Robert J. Marzano, “we can enter an era of unprecedented effectiveness for the public practice of education.” In What Works in Schools: Translating Research into Action, Marzano synthesizes that research to provide clear and unequalled insight into the nature of schooling.
Marzano defines the factors affecting student achievement and offers compelling answers to once-elusive questions:
In each chapter, Marzano recommends specific—and attainable—action steps to implement successful strategies culled from the wealth of research data.
Schools can and do affect student achievement. In his latest work, Marzano leads the way in establishing positive approaches that can make the long-held dream of effective public education a reality.
