- Publisher's Summary
- The Let Me Learn(TM) (LML) process demonstrates how to understand your students' learning needs, styles, and preferences and teach to their strengths. The authors provide an inventory (not a test!) that enables students to articulate and understand their own needs as learners, and allows you to plan effective instruction. Suitable for all grade levels and abilities, the LML process: - Increases students' metacognitive skills as they identify and articulate their own learning patterns - Helps students with learning disabilities remain in the general education classroom - Promotes reflective teaching and intentional learning.
