& QA What motivated you to write The New Art and Science of Teaching, and why now? The New Art and Science of Teaching is an update of my 2007 book The Art and Science of Teaching: A Comprehensive Framework for Effective Instruction. The main reason I decided to write The New Art and Science of Teaching is that the original version was written ten years ago, and a great deal of new research has been conducted on effective instruction. The growing body of new research was so compelling that an update of the model was necessary.

What new insights will educators find in this book? The most significant new insight is that each instructional strategy a teacher uses has a specific intended effect. These effects are either a mental process or a mental state on the part of students. For example, the instructional strategy of providing opportunities for students to talk about themselves is designed to produce the mental state of feeling accepted and valued by the teacher and peers. An understanding and awareness of these intended effects can make teachers much more effective.

EXPERT

Robert J. Marzano, cofounder and chief academic officer of Marzano Research

What do you feel is your next step in your work to support educators? For several years, research has already articulated the things we need to do to become highly effective at the school and classroom levels. What is still needed, however, is a process by which we monitor our effectiveness, celebrate successes, and make immediate corrections when needed. To this end, I’ve developed the High Reliability Schools™ model at the school level and the High Reliability Teacher™ model at the classroom level.

What prompted you to establish a book series around The New Art and Science of Teaching framework? Both the old Art and Science and the New Art and Science are very general frameworks. By that, I mean they talk about instructional strategies in general, but it’s kind of intuitively obvious that instruction in reading is going to have some significant differences from instruction in mathematics or in the arts or in science. The reason for the series was to get subject matter experts, like in mathematics and reading and writing and science and the arts, and have them take the framework and then translate it to their particular discipline.

How will The New Art and Science of Teaching help educators overcome the current challenges they face? The book ends with a chapter on eight systemslevel changes. These range in scope from getting rid of traditional lesson plans to revamping how we evaluate teachers. The basic message is that we can’t expect classroom teachers to be highly effective if schools and districts don’t make some major changes in the system that support the classroom teacher.
