Identifying Critical Content: Classroom Techniques to Help Students Know What Is Important

By Deana Senn, Amber C Rutherford, Robert J Marzano
Do your students know which content is most important to learn? Academic standards call for increased rigor, but simply raising complexity is not enough. Students must also take responsibility for their own learning. They need to be able to determine which content is critical, why it is important, how it connects to their existing knowledge, and when it will inform their future learning. Based on the earlier work of Dr. Robert J. Marzano, Identifying Critical Content: Classroom Strategies to Help Students Know What is Important explores explicit techniques for mastering a crucial strategy of instructional practice: teaching students the skill of identifying critical content. It includes: Explicit steps for implementation Recommendations for monitoring if students are able to identify critical content Adaptations for students who struggle, have special needs, or excel in learning Examples and non-examples from classroom practice Common mistakes and ways to avoid them The Essentials

Identifying Critical Content grabs your attention and holds it because the 'examples' and 'nonexamples' ring so true to me as a lifelong practitioner. I can hear and see my colleagues and myself in the narrative. -- Maryann Woods-Murphy "New Jersey Teacher of the Year"
