ASCD’s ultimate guide to teaching strategies The Strategic Teacher
became an instant best-seller and has been called “a touchstone text” by education research expert Robert J. Marzano. But getting the book’s breakthrough ideas into the thinking of every teacher can be a difficult and expensive challenge—unless you get this DVD. Using it in your next professional development activity or teacher meeting convinces teachers in every grade and subject of the need to acquire a repertoire of research-based strategies and to match those strategies to teaching objectives and student needs. Author and consultant Harvey Silver starts off the program with a basic overview of the Strategic Teacher, including the four styles of instructional approaches: mastery, interpersonal, self expression, and understanding. Then, classroom scenes demonstrate how the research-proven strategies presented in the book work and how teachers can use the strategies for lesson design and differentiated instruction. In dialogue among teachers and school leaders, hear how planning techniques from the Strategic Teacher can foster improved instructional practice schoolwide. Plus, scenes with groups of teachers working together in Professional Learning Clubs illustrate how to use the Strategic Teacher PLC Guides to
