The Highly Engaged Classroom by Robert Marzano
I have been meaning to post the last few days about a Professional Development our district had on Monday, July 18th. We had the privilege to have Dr. Tammy Heflebower, Vice President, and Ken Williams, Associate to the Marzano Research Laboratory come and present the main ideas about the book The Hightly Engaged Classroom. You can find the presentation information at Marzano Research Laboratory under The Highly Engaged Classroom, Raytown, MO - Presented by Tammy Heflebower. After reading the text and before going to the PD, I only had a few Aha! moments but after attending the PD I had many, many more. There is a lot of great information within the book to use in your classroom to make sure we are truly engaging our students. We not only want them to be compliant but we always want to strive to have them Highly Engaged!
