I’ve been off this week for mid-winter break, and have spent lots of time preparing for my MACUL presentation. The MACUL Conference is coming up… March 6-7. I’m going to be highlighting presentations that will be facilitated by MI DEN members on this blog, and thought I would start out by highlighting my session.
I have a few book studies that I facilitate, focusing on Using Technology with Classroom Instruction That Works. I’ll be sharing how I structure and facilitate my book studies, along with all the materials I use. Most everyone probably knows about Marzano’s nine instructional strategies that improve student achievement, according to thousands of research studies (Classroom Instruction That Works: Research-Based Strategies for Increasing Student Achievement). This new book shows how technology can support the nine strategies. I thought about writing a similar book about a year ago… wish I had acted quicker, as the authors beat me to it!
My session will be on Thursday, March 6, from 2:30-3:30pm. I’ll be sharing some on-line and printable resources that participants can use for their own book studies. K-12 teachers may learn about some ready-to-use tips and strategies that can make a positive difference for student learning. Hope to see you there!
