Davis Learning Strategies®
This 2-day workshop provides Primary Teachers (K- Gr.3) with unique and innovative strategies for improving reading instruction and classroom management. It equips young learners with proven lifelong skills in “how to learn.”
The Davis Learning Strategies® was conceived in 1993 and developed by Ronald D. Davis and Sharon Pfeiffer (Educator). In a pilot study published in 2001, these methods were shown to eliminate the need for special education placement for at-risk students. Strong readers gained stronger language and grammar skills, and weaker students learned to read effortlessly. Gifted education placement from pilot classrooms also far exceeded national averages. DLS provides a positive impact beyond reading as it empowers individual children to become self-managing learners. Benefit for the Students: • Davis Focusing Skills are an innovative set of self-regulation skills. These simple tools provide students with the self-directed ability to be focused on the learning task at hand. • Davis Symbol Mastery allows students to master the alphabet, punctuation marks, and basic sight words with a simple, easy, and fun alternative to pencil-paper activities. • Davis Reading Exercises improve skill in word recognition and comprehension. They can be used alone or as a supplement to other reading programs. Benefit for the Teacher: • Reach all students regardless of learning style; • Build effective sight vocabulary, comprehension, and other reading skills; • Manage the classroom more effectively; • Have methods that are easy to implement and flexible; • Meet early intervention needs that prevent the onset of a specific learning disability. (information regarding DLS found at http://www.davislearn.com) The purpose of the NOIT™ unit is to support an individual to learn how to be in a state of orientation with the senses working in harmony.
