COURSE DESCRIPTION

This seminar will present Landmark School’s six “Teaching Principles” and how teachers can effectively implement them in their setting.  All too often, students with learning disabilities experience issues that get in the way of their ability to learn: poor self-esteem, presentation models lacking creativity and structure, deficits in comprehending the application of concepts, not enough review, too few examples, and a lack of motivation.  This seminar will provide an overview of the teaching strategies that Landmark teachers use, and will explain how to use them so as to benefit all students in your setting.
