8 Strategies Robert Marzano & John Hattie Agree On
Robert Marzano and John Hattie have both reviewed research into what teaching strategies make the biggest difference to students’ results. While they used different methods and terminology, they agreed on these 8 powerful strategies. Strategy 1: A Clear Focus for the Lesson John Hattie highlights how important it is for you (and your students) to be clear about what you want them to learn in each lesson. According to Hattie, teacher clarity is one of the most potent influences on student achievement. Robert Marzano agrees, including lesson goals in his top 5 list of factors that affect how well students do at school. Hattie states that lesson goals: Clearly state what you want your students to learnCan focus on surface or deep learning (or both)Must be challenging for the students relative to their current mastery of the topicMay be grouped (i.e. a single lesson may have more than one goal)Need to be shared with the students How do you add mixed fractions with different denominators?
