Mediated Learning Workshops
These two-day experiences (10 hours total) are provided for parents and teachers who want to delve into the theoretical and practical aspects of mediated learning, without specifically using the Instrumental Enrichment (IE) materials.
After School Enrichment Programs
The after school programs are specifically designed to help students in need of developing cognitive or 'learning to learn' skills, outside of their regular classroom setting. When cognitive enrichment through the use of IE is not a part of the regular classroom curriculum, a tutorial or after school program often becomes an ideal setting for introducing administrators, teachers, parents and students to the concept of cognitive enrichment.
In one of our After School Enrichment Programs, classes typically are taught twice a week throughout the school year. During this time, teachers can identify deficiencies in cognitive functioning among students and provide the necessary (IE) curriculum and tutorial services, to begin to overcome these student shortcomings.
