Danger of a Single Story

We, as humans, are so many stories rolled into one. However, we often think of ourselves singularly. "I'm not good at math." "I'm not a morning person." "I don't get good grade." Why is that? What do you see when you look in the mirror? What do you see when you look at your learner? How many stories do you tell yourself about the person looking back at you? Watch the below video to learn of the dangers of a single story.

Community Academic Recovery Lab-Secondary Learners

CARL

Goal: To teach learners habits and skills to be successful in learning at home. Goal setting, time management, self-advocacy, and reflection are a few skills that we teach throughout their day. We do Not these skills through defining or direct instruction on these skills. We teach them through modeling and experiencing a successful day of learning IN ACTION during CARL.


If your learner is 1 week behind, they will be required to come to CARL 4 days next week. The schedule is below. All learners should eat before coming or when they get home. Please reach out with questions!



Your learner will attend CARL on the days they are not in session. On the day your learner is scheduled to come to face-to-face session, they DO NOT attend CARL.


Monday: 12:00-4:00

Tuesday: 7:40-11:40

Wednesday: 12:00-4:00
