Bloomington, Ind. (PRWEB) May 20, 2008
Solution Tree , a leading educational professional development company, has announced a joint venture with internationally acclaimed researcher Dr. Robert J. Marzano to create the Marzano Research Laboratory. The new company’s focus will be to synthesize Marzano’s 35 years of educational research, world-renowned for its breadth and depth, into accessible components that teachers and principals can put to immediate use for immediate gains in student learning. These strategies will be driven by continuous action research.
According to Marzano, “Our vision is to develop an online ‘research-into-practice’ resource center that would have up-to-date synthesis of all major areas of schooling—effective instructional practices, effective leadership practices and effective classroom assessment practices—along with practical strategies in each area. We will have something truly unique when the Marzano Research Laboratory products are completed.”
