-to develop research and instructional practices with one goal in mind: help the students
-well-thought out practices for teachers across America to use regardless of their situation
-reminder of the privilege and opportunity we have as educators of our future by seeing the passion Dr. Marzano has exemplified.
=Just a Marzano promotes educational reform, God calls us to radically reform ourselves when He calls us to turn our lives, our hearts, our wills, over to Him.
-Marzano believes each student can grow to be a valuable member of the world around them; a true Christian worldview.
-Note-taking is also a useful tool for keeping track of prayers; dreams and visions; and messages from God. Summarizing is good way to synthesize the knowledge learned through the study of God’s word.

Nine categories of strategies, when used properly, enhance student achievement.
- Identifying Similarities and Differences - Summarizing and Note-taking
- Reinforcing Effort and Providing Recognition - Cooperative Learning
- Setting Objectives and Providing Feedback - Homework and Practice
- Nonlinguistic Representations
- Generating and Testing Hypotheses
- Cues, Questions, and Advance Organizers.

Quality instruction
has the greatest impact
on student achievement
- students must delete, substitute, and keep information; and then write about the topic in their own words.
- the structure of the information presented is important
Activities that help develop summarizing skills
- rule-based summaries
- summary frames
- reciprocal teaching
- students must identify the most important information and state it in a shorter format.
- more notes are better than fewer notes
Activities that help develop note-taking skills
- teacher-prepared notes as a model
- various note-taking formats
- The Midcontinent Research for Education and Learning has done the research to support each category of strategies
- Marzano''s books provide detailed instructions, examples, and graphic organizers for each category that can be implemented immediately
- Some of the instructional strategies can be used during church service, personal and group Bible study to help remember the information being taught (summarizing and note-taking etc.) and enhance your Christian walk
-Some of the instructional strategies can also be used for people who have instructional positions in the ministry
