You’re not alone. We all have struggling learners who desperately need our support. And while we can clearly see that they are struggling, so often we don’t know exactly how to help them. We need something that will actually work rather than a system that will not only let them down, but lead to further frustration and giving up.
You’ve waited long enough.
Often we don’t intervene with struggling learners until after they have failed. Only then do we look for some strategy or magic bullet so that they can catch up. This reactive cycle of failure and remediation is exhausting for teachers and frustrating for students. What if you could create a built-in support system that would prevent most students from ever struggling in the first place? What if there was something you could do to make student success much more likely for every student you serve? And what if you could do all of this without creating a ton of extra work for yourselves or your students? The Student SUCCESS Support System shows you how.
This is a complete support system. You'll be able to start using these strategies right away with your own students and see immediate results.
This series can be booked for 3 consecutive days or 3 days throughout the school year.
Day One: Supporting Students Before Instruction. You’ll get started working on your support plan right away. First, you’ll learn the 2 biggest reasons students struggle and learn how to anticipate confusion prior to learning. That way, you’ll know exactly how to set students up for success from the very start. You’ll also learn how to activate background knowledge (or create it if students don’t have it already), use vocabulary as a support tool, and select the right organizing strategies to ensure that students are supported from the very start. By the end of the day, you will have all the tools you need to shift from catching students up to helping the keep up from the very start saving you time and your students tons of frustration in the process.
Day Two: Supporting Students During Instruction. First, you’ll find out the difference between productive and destructive struggle. Then you’ll dive right in to learn exactly how to recognize when students are struggling destructively and specific strategies you can use to catch them early and get them back on track. By the end of the day, you’ll have a complete proactive intervention plan you can put on automatic pilot to respond right away the moment students struggle and get them quickly back on track.
Day Three: Supporting Students After Instruction. Even with your best efforts, there still may be some students who take longer to get it. In this session, you’ll learn everything you need to know to effectively remediate struggling learners and help them catch up quickly. We’ll show you how to set up short-term and long-term remediation processes that have been proven to be really effective and we’ll help you get everything organized so that you can keep track of your students’ road to success over time.
We recommend that you order the entire series. It’s the best way to fully develop a rigorous instructional program. But, you can also select just one day of the series to get your team started. You won’t get the full benefit of the program but you will get valuable tools and strategies you can immediately apply in your school.
