  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.

Viewers will learn how to hold difficult but crucial conversations that lead to higher levels of commitment to PLC practices.
