Marzano’s Essential 9High Leverage Instructional Strategies

By the end of the session you will...

- examine research-based instructional strategies that affect student achievement
- identify various methods for teaching these strategies
- determine which strategies you will incorporate in your classroom practice.

- Robert Marzano, Debra Pickering, Jane Pollock
- From books, Classroom Instruction That Works & The Handbook for Classroom Instruction that Works
- Identified nine instructional strategies that are most likely to improve student achievement across all content areas and across all grade levels

- Sign your name on the top of your paper.
- Avoid people seated at your table.
- Find a different partner for 2:00; 4:00; 6:00; 8:00; 10:00; 12:00
- Trade signatures.
- Sit down as soon as you have all signatures.
- You have 2 minutes 14 seconds.

Research

The ability to break a concept into its similar and dissimilar characteristics allows students to understand (and often solve) complex problems by analyzing them in a more simple way.

- Find your 4:00 partner. Find another pair, finish the following statement.
Going back to school after Winter

vacation is like ______________

because _________________ .

Variety of Ways

-Comparing

similarities and differences

-Classifying

grouping things that are alike

-Metaphors

comparing two unlike things

-Analogies

identifying relationships between pairs of

concepts

Recommendations

For Classroom Practice

- Give students a model for the process.
- Use familiar content to teach steps.
- Give students graphic organizers.
- Guide students as needed.

Research

High leverage strategies because they:

- encourage powerful learning

- lead to deeper understanding

- endure long-term recall

Verbatim note taking is the least

effective way to take notes.

Recommendations

for Classroom Practice

- Use summary frames
- Use a rule-based summary strategy
(a set of rules students can follow to summarize text)

Use the Triad Summarizing format to summarize the article “Moving With the Brain in Mind”

Large Group Share

Research

Note taking and summarizing are closely related. Both require students to identify what is most important about the knowledge they are learning and then state that knowledge in their own words.

Recommendations

For Classroom Practice

- Teach students a variety of note- taking formats.
- Give students teacher-prepared notes.
- Remind students to review theirnotes.

Although note taking is one of the most useful study skills a student can cultivate, often teachers do not explicitly teach note taking strategies in the classroom.

Find your10:00partner and share.

What elements of the Cornell note format make this type of note taking effective for students?

How could this format be adapted for use with younger students?

Believing in effort can serve as a powerful motivational tool that students can apply to any situation

- Think, Pair, Share - Turn to your neighbor and discuss…
- How do you reinforce students’ effort in your classroom?
- What is the purpose for reinforcing effort in the classroom?
- What makes reinforcing effort effective or ineffective?
- What questions do you have about reinforcing effort?

- People generally attribute success at any given task to one of four causes:

- Effort
- Other people
- Ability
- Luck

- Three of these four beliefs ultimately inhibit achievement – (Covington 1983,1985)

- Not all students realize the importance of believing in effort.

Implication is that teachers should explain and exemplify the “effort belief” to students.

Urdan,Midgley, & Anderman 1998

Generalizations from Research

Students can learn to change their beliefs to an emphasis on effort

Students who were taught about the relationship between effort and achievement increased their achievement more than students who were taught techniques for time management and comprehension of new material.

Van Overwalle & De Metsenaere, 1990

Students need to be taught that effort can improve achievement.

- Share personal examples of times you have succeeded because you did not give up
- Share examples of well-known athletes and others who succeeded mainly because they did not give up
- Have students share personal examples of times they succeeded because they did not give up.

Have students chart effort and achievement

Charting their effort and achievement will reveal patterns and help students see the connection between the two.

- Students know what is expected.
- Fair and credible evaluations are used.
- Curriculum is geared to standards.
- Student responsibility for work is emphasized.
- Results are fixed, time varies.
- Recognition of accomplishment is utilized.

ORGANIZING CLASSROOMS FOR EFFORT

Providing recognition for attainment of specific goals not only enhances achievement, but it stimulates motivation

Rewards do not necessarily have a negative effect on intrinsic motivation.

Reward is most effective when it is contingent on the attainment of some standard of performance.

Abstract symbolic recognition is more effective than tangible rewards.

Recommendations for Classroom Practice

- Establish a rationale for reinforcing effort and providing recognition

- Follow guidelines for effective and ineffective praise.

- Link effort to achievement

- Use the pause, prompt, and praise technique

Base Group ACTIVITY

Read the four examples of providing recognition in the classroom.

In your group, evaluate each example according to the Guidelines for Praise.

Determine if recognition is Effective or Ineffective

Cite the specific criteria and explain your thinking.

Teacher Recognition

Example 1: Dana was unable to make any connections among the elements using a table of characteristics. Mr. Mulder suggests she focus on one characteristic and look for connections. When he returns later, Dana explains how she had figured out a way to group the elements according to boiling point. Mr. Mulder congratulates her on on finding a valid connection.

Example 2: Mr. Mulder circulates as students are working in small groups. He pauses at Station 1 and comments, “Nice work on your calculations.” At Station 2, he says, “Nice work on your graphs.” At Station 3, he says, “Nice work on your calculations.

Teacher Recognition

Example 3: “You really did a good job working through all of the steps and checking your answers for this problem. I know you’ve had difficulties with multi-step calculations before and sometimes settled for getting any answer down on paper, even if it wasn’t correct. Your determination with third task really showed.”

Example 4: “Good job. Jackson. Keep it up.”

SNOWBALL ACTIVITY

On a post-it note answer this question.

Why are Reinforcing Effort and Providing Recognition included in the nine categories of Instructional Strategies proven to increase student achievement?

Homework and practice

Nonlinguistic representations

Cooperative learning

Rationale

- Why homework?
- Students are in school a short time

- Homework extends learning beyond

the school day

- Asset or Liability?
- It depends on how it is used

- Take 3-4 minutes to answer these questions on the handout provided.
- What are the purposes of homework?
- What kind of homework do you assign your students?
- What makes homework effective, and how do you know it has been?
- What questions do you have about using homework?
Find your 2:00 partner and share

Research

Both homework and practice give students opportunities to deepen their understanding and proficiency with content they are learning.

Considerations/Recommendations

-Amount

10 X the # of the grade as a guideline

-Parent involvement

Parents as facilitators

-Homework policy

Feasible & defensible expectations

-Purpose

Without one, it’s “busy work”

-Assignment sheets

Clarify what they are doing and why

-Feedback (be specific)

Can improve student achievement

Research

- Students need to practice skills and processes before they can use them effectively.
- Goal is for learning a skill, not learning information.

Recommendations

For Classroom Practice

- Determine which skills are worth practicing.
- Schedule massed and distributed practice.
- Help students shape a skill or process (explicit instruction and modeling)

Research

-Teachers typically present new

knowledge to students linguistically.

-Engaging students in the creation of

nonlinguistic representation actually

stimulates and increases activity in

the brain.

Recommendations

For Classroom Practice

- Graphic organizers
- Pictographic representations
- Mental images
- Physical models

Use Graphic Organizers to:

- Activate current knowledge
- Present information
- Take notes
- Summarize information
- Assess student learning

- Graphic organizers make thinking visible.
- Different graphic organizers represent different kinds of thinking.
- Students must be taught how to use graphic organizers.
- The goal is for students to be able to select the appropriate graphic organizer.

Give One—Get One

- Take two post-it notes, on each one, write one way that you have used graphic organizers in your classroom.
- Share and exchange ideas with other participants.

Research

Organizing students into cooperative groups yields a positive effect on overall learning if approach is systematic and consistent.

Recommendations

For Classroom Use

- Teach students the elements of cooperative learning
- Vary grouping criteria
(informal, formal and base)

- Manage group size
(3-5 students)

Pair Square

Locate your Louvre Museum partner, find another team.

- What activity did we do today that is an example of cooperative learning?
- What are some ways you group students other than skill level?

Research

Students learn more efficiently when they know the goals and objectives of a specific lesson or learning activity.

- What do students need to know and be able to do?
- How do I know they got it?
- What do I do when they don’t?
- What do I do when they do?

- Mastery Objectives
- Language Objectives
- Written in Kid-Friendly Language

Recommendations

For Classroom Practice

- Set “standards-based” goals for a unit and encourage students to set personal learning goals on how they’ll achieve them.
- Communicate learning objectives to parents so they can provide appropriate support to students.

GOAL: To become a better writer

MORE CONCRETE:

- I want to write more effective introductions with clear, concise thesis statements.
- I want to use good paragraph form in my writing.

Recommendations

For Classroom Practice

- Use various methods of assessment.
- Feedback should be corrective in nature.
- Give timely feedback.
- Feedback should be specific to criterion.
- Self-assessment tools may be used to gauge progress.

“Academic feedback is more strongly and consistently related to achievement than any other teaching behavior. This relationship is consistent regardless of grade, socioeconomic status, race or school setting.”

Bellon, Jerry J. Teaching from a Research Knowledge Base. 1992

Why are rubrics an excellent way to give students specific feedback?

Research

Generating and testing hypotheses involves the application of knowledge, which enhances learning.

Examples of Strategies

- Systems Analysis
- Problem Solving
- Historical Investigation
- Invention
- Experimental Inquiry
- Decision Making

Recommendations

For Classroom Practice

- Give students a model for the strategy
- Use familiar content to teach the strategy
- Make graphic organizers available
- Provide guided practice
- Have students explain their hypotheses and conclusions

Research

- Cues
Explicit reminders about what a student is about to experience

- Questions
Help students analyze what they already know

- Advance Organizers
Help students retrieve what they know about a topic and focus on the new information

Recommendations

For Classroom Practice

Cues

- Telling students the topic of an article they are about to read
- Reminding students to look for new information when reading

Recommendations

For Classroom Practice

Questions

- Higher-level questions require students to analyze information and apply what they know

Research shows that…

1/3 of class interactions are questions

Primary grades: 150 per hour

Elementary/high: several hundred per day

(Gage/Berliner)

Research shows that…

(Flanders)

RULE OF 2/3

2/3 of class time is verbal

2/3 of that time is questions

2/3 are asked by teacher

2/3 are answered by teacher

- Advance organizers are organizational frameworks teachers present to students prior to teaching new content to prepare them for what they are about to learn.
- Advance organizers focus on essential information and get students ready to use the information.

Recommendations

For Classroom Practice

- SQRRR (survey, question, read, recite, review)
- Narrative advance organizers (tell a story to make personal connections)
- Expository
- Skim a text
- Use graphic organizers

Find your Merovingian King partner and share:

- Review SQ3R method. What are some ways you could implement this in your classroom?

- examine research-based instructional strategies that affect student achievement
- identify various methods for teaching these strategies
- determine which strategies you will incorporate in your classroom practice.
