Learner Variability... The End of Average
Limited Capacity seats available

The best fit for learners isn't one size fits all, nor most.  Each individual student has a unique learner map as a result of varied experiences and abilities.  Attend our session to learn more about learner variability, and to explore the Learner Variabilty Project (LVP), a FREE online tool that translates the science of learner variability into easily accessible learner factor maps and strategies to improve classroom practice.  This resource, grounded in research, identifies the factors (across the categories of the content area, cognition, social-emotional learning, and background) that are critical to learner success at multiple stages and the strategies to help you purposefully support each learner.  This tool can be used to develop your personal knowledge on the science of learning, used in PLC's to guide discussion around best practices, and used by teams to identify strategies for Tier 2 and 3 MTSS supports.  Let's put "an end to average"!
