SIM Virtual Professional Learning for Educators

Audience:  Florida Educators interested in SIM Learning Strategies on Listening and Note-Taking, & Test-Taking.  

SIM encompasses more than 30 Learning Strategies that can help students overcome specific learning difficulties that impede literacy from identifying words in a text to completing assignments on time to writing essays.  Students use SIM Learning Strategies--an approach to learning and using information--to help them understand information and solve problems. Students who do not know or use good learning strategies often learn passively and ultimately fail in school. SIM Learning Strategy instruction focuses on making students active learners.
