Over more than the past decade Marzano has been a leader in international thinking about school education, and ‘how best to teach’ (“instructional strategies” – see below), for want of a better phrase. His recent publication, stated in the title above, is the latest since his early work in 1988 Dimensions of Thinking. In his “Introduction” in 2017, he states, “I note that no single instructional strategy can guarantee student learning for a number of reasons. One is that many factors other than the use of instructional strategies affect student learning. Another is that instructional strategies work in concert or sets and should not be thought of as independent interventions. Still another is that educators have to use strategies in specific ways to produce positive results.” In other words, learning, and teaching, are complex. They rely on the relationship of learning trust that a student has developed with an expert Teacher.
