“Ask yourself, ‘What will I do to provide clear learning goals, track progress and celebrate success?'”- Robert J. Marzano

Robert J. Marzano, PhD, is a nationally recognized education researcher, speaker, trainer, and author of more than 50 books and 200 articles on topics such as instruction, assessment, writing and implementing standards, cognition, effective leadership, and school intervention.

His practical translations of the most current research and theory into classroom strategies are widely practiced internationally by both teachers and administrators. Marzano has partnered with Instructional Empowerment to offer the Marzano Teacher Evaluation Model, the Marzano School Leadership Evaluation Model, and the Marzano District Leader Evaluation Model. The Marzano evaluation models have been adopted by school districts across the country because they don’t simply measure ability, they help teachers and leaders grow, improving their instruction over time. Marzano also co-developed the Learning Sciences Marzano Center Essential Strategies for Achieving Rigor, a model of instruction that fosters essential teaching skills and strategies to support college and career readiness standards. He received a bachelor’s degree from Iona College in New York, a master’s degree from Seattle University, and a doctorate from the University of Washington.
