  1. Developing Expert Teachers DVD

    In this two-part presentation, Robert Marzano provides a blueprint detailing how schools can develop teacher expertise. Addressing teachers directly as well as school leaders, he charts research-based techniques to organise strategies through lesson segments using a nine-segment framework. The segments are sorted into three categories: segments involving routine events; segments involving academic content; and segments involving issues that must be addressed as they occur. Using personal anecdotes, Marzano explains techniques for teachers and school leaders in a thoughtful and engaging presentation. This package includes a DVD with the video session and a CD with materials including the presenter's PowerPoint, an excerpt from the book On Excellence in Teaching and relevant web links.

  3. Defensible Differentiation: What Does It Take to Get It Right

    Differentiated instruction was designed to address the instructional needs of diverse students. However, simply claiming to practise differentiation will not meet those needs.

She examines and invites educators to scrutinise their practices in applying the four foundational principles of effective differentiation. This package includes a 72-minute DVD with the video session and a CD with materials to support team or individual professional learning, an excerpt from the book On Excellence in Teaching and relevant web links.

  7. Leading Difficult Conversations: Professional Learning Communities at Work DVD

In this short video, Richard DuFour and Rebecca DuFour model a principal and a teacher engaging in a conflict over marking practices, then the role play is broken down and analysed.

  8. Backward Design DVD

    In this keynote session (from the 13 October 2010, On Excellence in Teaching Summit), Jay McTighe helps participants to understand the three stages of backward design: Identify desired results; Determine acceptable evidence; and Plan learning experiences and instruction.
