If you’re reading this, you likely already understand why teaching students how to learn is so important … so we’ll skip the standard spiel and get right to the important question: what makes this course different?
Well, there are three things:
#1 | While most students are exposed to the idea that embracing a learning-and-growth mindset is important, few are ever taught WHY it’s important (let alone HOW they can take steps to practically apply this idea).
And, unfortunately, without a compelling why, simply sharing this idea with students is mostly useless. It’s like planting a potent seed without giving it adequate water and sunlight.
So, with The Learning Blueprint, we address the WHY up front by taking students on an illuminating tour of the brain, and helping them understand what learning actually means on a literal level.
During this process, students are forced to confront many common myths and misunderstandings about learning that may be stifling their potential.
But more importantly, they discover WHY learning is such a vital skill, and WHY (despite what they may currently believe) they are in control the process.
Then -- only after we’ve established the necessary belief and buy-in -- do we tackle the HOW of learning.
During the second part of the program, students are exposed to deep learning practices, the mechanics of memory, the imperative of errors and mistakes, powerful study and classroom-success tactics, proven self-management strategies, and much more.
By teaching students the WHY and HOW of learning -- and by helping them take ownership of the process -- The Learning Blueprint is a uniquely powerful tool for deepening student engagement and supporting academic success.
