The Strategic Instruction Model™ (SIM™) is an integrated model of research-validated practices that addresses the needs of diverse learners, primarily adolescents. SIM™ has been developed through rigorous, on-going research at the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning (KU-CRL). SIM™ consists of learning strategies and routines. The Learning Strategies (student-centered) are used with students to help in the mastery of basic skills, while the Content Enhancement Routines (teacher-centered) are used with whole class instruction to help teachers make content meaningful and memorable for students. More detailed information is provided on the Strategic Instruction Model™ website and on this webcast.
