Overview

Can your students analyze their own understanding of content? Based on the earlier work of Dr. Robert J. Marzano, this book provides explicit steps for teaching students to investigate, experiment, solve problems, and deepen their understanding of content. It includes adaptations for various student populations, examples and nonexamples from classroom practice, and strategies to avoid making common mistakes.
