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.
