Publisher: Learning Sciences International

Can your students recognize when their own logic is flawed? To meet rigorous academic standards, students need to know how to state a claim and support it with evidence. They must be able to examine their thinking, and the thinking of others. Based on the earlier work of Dr. Robert J. Marzano, Examining Reasoning: Classroom Techniques to Help Students Produce and Defend Claims provides explicit steps for implementation and monitoring students' ability to examine errors in reasoning. It includes adaptations for various student populations, examples and nonexamples from classroom practice, and strategies to avoid making common mistakes.
