PACS Model of Instruction
Pulaski Academy and Central School District practices the Marzano comprehensive framework for effective instruction. This teaching framework is based on decades of research, practice, and common sense. One of its most important tenets is that teaching is both an art and a science. It is science in that there are strategies that research has shown improve student learning; effective teachers understand these strategies and are skilled in their application. It is art in the sense that effective teaching does not follow a script; it takes creativity, experimentation, monitoring, and a love of learning. To equip both new and experienced teachers with the tools to enhance the art and science of teaching, the District is providing ongoing professional development and administrative support.
