The Davis Learning Foundation has recently re-launched its website and included a free 15 part course to explain the often asked question
The e-course is aimed at teachers frustrated by the children that seem to have mysterious barriers to effective learning.
If you have ever wondered “Why are there children who get 9/10 in a spelling test, but then spell those same test words incorrectly in their next piece of writing?”
Or “Why are there children who, however hard I try to make my lesson entertaining, just switch off, or sabotage my efforts and their own learning with seemingly pointless disruptive behaviour?”
then this course is for you.
