  • Review mentee’s professional goals and adjust development plan accordingly. Plans should ideally be discussed at the beginning of the year and reviewed at the end

  • Did you participate last Year?
  • Stands for Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning.
  • It is a research and development corporation in Denver.
  • Dr. Robert Marzano, Dr. Debra Pickering, and Dr. Jane Pollack wrote a book called Classroom Instruction that Works while they worked for McREL.
  • The strategies come from that book.
  • They are often referred to as Marzano’s strategies, but technically McREL “owns” them.
meta analysis
  • Marzano, Pickering, and Pollock wanted to know what strategies were the most effective teaching strategies.
  • Instead of designing a new study, they searched existing research and identified 9 strategies that work.
  • Called a “meta-analysis” because they analyzed so many studies to derive the conclusions.
  • Are you Highly Effective?
  • Your Principal is on your TEAM
  • ASK questions
  • Use your Mentor(s)
