Organizing for Learning, part of the Marzano Center: Essentials for Achieving Rigor series, helps teachers promote productive small-group discussions in the classroom. As teachers become better at planning and providing practice sessions that build these skills, students become more adept at participating in structured grouping, peer response groups, paired practice, partner discussions, and reflecting on learning as part of a group.
