What is a high yield strategy? High yield strategies are evidenced based strategies that have been proven to improve learning outcomes. There have been a variety of studies, meta-analysis of these strategies by researchers such as Hattie, Robinson, Marzano and Glase.
They determined that these strategies have the greatest positive affect on student achievement for all students, in all subject areas, at all grade levels.

Emphasize non-fiction writing • Use the gradual release of responsibility model • Provide opportunities for purposeful talk • differentiate instruction
Plan collaboratively • Promote a culture of high expectation • Plan large blocks of learning time
