Okay, so you've seen the Marzano placemat and know how it's organized. Now what? The chart and language used can be very overwhelming, especially if your school or district basically says, "Here, use this," without any high quality training. But don't worry. In fact, there's nothing new on it!
So, if it's just old stuff (or new names for old stuff), why bother, right? It's just a fad that will go away.
First, it's not a fad. It's an organized list of best practices. And second, it actually saves time and makes lesson planning easier.
