Cognitive Strategies for Struggling Learners

Last year we were trained by the Intervention Services Department in cognitive processing strategies and how to identify learner needs. The Intervention Services Department created a Schoology course to help us in this process. Through the RtI process we will be using the documents provided in this course and the corresponding strategies. Please join this course: Intervention Services: Cognitive Strategies for Struggling Learners using the access code N8KSJ-4B5ST.
