Hey, Classroom Heroes!

Why Bright Students Struggle #2: Investigating Difficult Tasks

We want effective, practical solutions to help our disorganized, inattentive & procrastination-inclined students ASAP, but we will get farther faster if we know the true root causes of their challenges.

Knowing how to investigate difficult tasks is a key skill that I draw on daily as a learning specialist working with students across grades & subjects.

In this video you will learn how to uncover *why* your students struggle:
-Learn how to quantify (count) & qualify (describe) like a BOSS. (Later this data will be really important for setting goals & demonstrating progress.)
-Use behavior logs to get at why students act the way they do.
-Follow a case study student, where I walk you step-by-step through the process.
-Pull together the clues to find the right solutions, faster.

Plus, THREE SUPER-USEFUL WORKSHEETS for recording & pulling it all together.

Check it out & don't forget to follow me for additional videos & resources.

Please & Thank You!

P.S. My other video, My #1 Strategy for Successful Parent-Teacher Conferences, teaches you how to hold PRODUCTIVE meetings to build parent cooperation while also laying a foundation for supporting the student going forward.

I used this strategy for every single one of my parent-teacher conferences as a classroom teacher & it is still how I start every meeting with parents now that I work with students with learning challenges as a learning specialist & educational therapist.

It has made countless numbers of potentially difficult meetings go better than even I hoped they would!
