BLOOMINGTON, IN--(Marketwired - February 02, 2017) - Solution Tree, a premier educational publisher and professional development provider, has announced that it is partnering with the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) to co-publish The New Art and Science of Teaching by Robert J. Marzano. Following up on the original Art and Science of Teaching, the book offers a framework for substantive change based on Marzano's 50 years of education research and observation and his identification of more than 50 new instructional strategies.

While the original version focused on teacher outcomes, the new version places focus on student outcomes. It illustrates how specific teacher actions correspond to the mental states and processes students need in order to reach their peak academic success. Throughout the book, Marzano details the elements of three overarching categories of teaching, which define what must happen to optimize student learning: students must receive feedback, get meaningful content instruction, and have their basic psychological needs met.

This joint publication will allow Marzano's work to reach out to educators around the world, in print and eBook form, as well as through professional development and educational events. Solution Tree CEO Jeff Jones said, "We are thrilled to be co-publishing The New Art and Science of Teaching with ASCD. Under Deb Delisle's leadership at ASCD, I am confident that together we can help countless teachers around the world enhance student learning with this phenomenal resource, created by one of this country's leading writers and researchers, Bob Marzano."

"For more than 20 years, Bob Marzano has inspired educators around the world to improve their practice and student learning," said Deb Delisle, ASCD executive director and CEO. "This exciting partnership with Solution Tree will put The New Art and Science of Teaching in the hands of educators truly committed to building an effective classroom for all students."

The New Art and Science of Teaching will be available Feb. 15, 2017.
