“My two daughters are beginning teachers. As such, they need theoretically sound, yet eminently practical guidance for their work with students. The ideas in this book will unquestionably make their classrooms more engaging!”

Jay McTighe, educational consultant, Maryland

“For years people have thought of student engagement as something primarily based on factors outside of school. However, Marzano and Pickering have combed the research and found an abundance of ways teachers can deliberately plan to increase the engagement in their classrooms. They present an overview of the research and then translate that research into over forty strategies that teachers can incorporate into their instruction.

“I also like that the authors help to define ‘student engagement.’ As school leaders we often walk into a classroom and note that students are ‘not engaged.’ However, we don’t always have the language or the tools to help teachers understand why students are not engaged and what teachers can do to improve student engagement.”

Jenn David-Lang, for The Main Idea, 2011

“The 21st century classroom needs to shift dramatically to catch up to a new generation of learners coming to our schools every day. Engaging learners is key. The Highly Engaged Classroom will give you specific, exciting, and fresh approaches to genuinely empower your students. The learner moves to the driver's seat as teachers equip them with tools to learn from feedback and navigate their future.”

Heidi Hayes Jacobs, executive director of the Curriculum Mapping Institute, president of Curriculum Designers, Inc., New York
