Generating and Testing Hypothesis

Marzano states that Generating and Testing Hypothesis enhances students' understanding of and ability to use knowledge by engaging them in mental processes that involved making and testing hypotheses.

In our staff development book, "Using Technology with Classroom Instruction that Works" we learn how to implement this effective instructional strategy using technology tools. This not only improves learning for students but also improves engagement by getting students directly involved in the use of technology.

To start this study of Generating and Testing Hypothesis, please read chapter 11 pages 202 to 216. Then view the following PowerPoint to help you understand the effectiveness and process for integrating this strategy into your instruction using technology. There are several weblinks within the PowerPoint, please view these sites as well. At the end of the presentation you will find directions as to what is need to complete the requirements of the grant.

You can choose to work alone or with another teacher. If you need help or have questions, please see Mary!
