About this site

This resource developed by the Northwest Regional Educational Service District (NWRESD) in collaboration with teachers from our region is an effort to provide research and resources to support effective teaching for the students in our twenty districts and in our state. NWRESD first created the ELL Best Practices website http://ell.nwresd.org to improve teaching practices for ELLs.  This website grew out of that original project to provide a more cost effective method for teacher training and  to reduce the time teachers are out of the classroom. Organized around the nine effective teaching strategies identified by Marzano, Pickering, and Pollock, the site includes the latest research on teaching from as many educators in the field as we could sufficiently gather.The following list provides examples teaching practices that improve student learning and the contributors to this site will keep this list as current at possible.
