The best instructional strategies for student learning!
Improving instruction for better student learning is about science, not guesswork. Classroom Instruction That Works (CITW) books, resources, and professional learning services are the result of McREL’s research and analysis of hundreds of instructional strategies used in thousands of classrooms and remote learning settings, and they’re used by teachers, instructional coaches, and school leaders worldwide to develop stronger lesson plans, effective delivery, and a common vocabulary for teaching and sharing of best practices.
