I remember sitting in a PD years ago with a presenter who said something like, "Students don't learn from reading, they learn by thinking about what they have read." At the time, I didn't quite get it - I had yet to shed an over-reliance on textbooks and worksheets. But now, I realize the presenter (whether they knew it or not) had a clear understanding of Dr. Marzano's tenth element - Helping Students Process New Content.
Below are some things you (or an administrator) could look for to see if this element is being utilized in your classroom.
