Landmark’s Teaching Principles in YOUR Classroom – Summer Institute 2020

This seminar will present and discuss the Landmark’s Six Teaching PrinciplesTM and how teachers can effectively implement the six principles in their classroom. All too often, students with learning disabilities experience issues in the classroom that negatively impact their ability to learn. Students may have poor self-esteem, deficits in comprehending how to apply concepts, or a lack of motivation. They may also require extra time for review, additional examples, and more structured models. This seminar will provide an overview of the teaching strategies that Landmark teachers use to help students overcome these challenges and will explain how to use the strategies to benefit all students in the classroom. 


Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the meaning of each of Landmark’s Six Teaching PrinciplesTM and its rationale.
  • Recognize why and how using these principles will benefit all students.
  • Interpret and utilize activities and lessons designed around the principles.
  • Create activities and/or lessons that implement the principles.
  • Develop strategies to help students with learning disabilities experience success in the classroom.
