Practicing Skills, Strategies, & Processes, part of the Marzano Center: Essentials for Achieving Rigor series, explores explicit techniques for mastering this crucial strategy of instructional practice. Students need to be able to process information quickly and respond to situations with fluency and accuracy. As teachers become better at planning and providing practice sessions that build these skills, students become more adept at using new knowledge and processes swiftly and accurately. Fluent thinking is crucial for success on the SAT, ACT, and other timed testing situations.
