The Learning Strategies course is designed to accommodate for the individual needs of the learner, reflected in the student's Individual Education Plan. In small classes, students with IEPs learn strategies that best support their learning style and apply these skills to their other courses. Students are provided a range of opportunities to demonstrate their understanding on the curriculum and to work on assigned tasks independently, one-on-one with their teacher and collaboratively in small groups.
Course topics may include:
