Recording & Representing Knowledge, part of the Marzano Center: Essentials for Achieving Rigor series, explores explicit techniques for mastering this crucial strategy of instructional practice. Students must know how to effectively interact with new knowledge. To do that, they must be able to summarize what they've read, analyze text for specific characteristics, and create organized, succinct written works that demonstrate a deep understanding of the content. As educators develop expertise in teaching these skills, students become adept at recording and representing knowledge, both linguistically and non-linguistically, helping them retain the critical information.
