  2. The Essentials for Standards-Driven Classrooms: A Practical Instructional Model for Every Student to Achieve Rigor

    To reach true academic rigour, learners need high levels of both cognitive complexity and autonomy. But moving them in this direction requires teachers to become skilled at using research-based strategies to make the critical instructional shifts that deepen student learning. The Essentials for Achieving Rigor model of instruction and corresponding series of books were developed to help teachers provide that calibre of truly rigorous instruction. Carla Moore, Michael Toth and Robert Marzano provide valuable tips and guidance to help teachers leverage essential strategies to conduct standards-based planning and instruction, establish conditions for learning and criteria for success, use formative assessment data to make decisions and practise strategies in a unified system of instruction.
