The Art and Science of Teaching: A Comprehensive Framework for Effective Instruction
Though classroom instructional strategies should clearly be based on sound science and research, knowing when to use them and with whom is more of an art. In The Art and Science of Teaching: A Comprehensive Framework for Effective Instruction, author Robert J. Marzano presents a model for ensuring quality teaching that balances the necessity of research-based data with the equally vital need to understand the strengths and weaknesses of individual students.
What people are saying - Write a review
A very helpful and comprehensive book
As anyone in academia knows, the quality of educational research is suspect (at best), generally speaking, and Mr. Marzano's work is no exception. As other reviews mentioned, if your background is in statistics/research, you are going to scream trying to read this. I could go on for a while but instead I will strongly encourage everyone to read Dr. Daniel Wexler's review of this book over on Amazon, "Marzano - A successful fraud". You may also want to look up "Abusing Research" by Alfie Kohn and “Peer-review of Marzano’s IWB Study Report" on Edsanity.
