The Strategic Instruction Model

The Strategic Instruction Model

SIM's components--Content Enhancement Routines, Learning Strategies Curriculum, and supporting materials--give teachers access to a breadth and depth of instructional procedures to address many of the challenges they face in the classroom. Many of our materials are "controlled", meaning they are available only in conjunction with professional development in their use. Contact us at simpd@ku.edu for information about SIM Professional Developers in your area. Please include your zip code in the email.
