A Taste of Davis Discovery Series

Dear Colleague,

However much you love and enjoy working with the classes that you teach…

…Have you ever felt frustrated that there are some children with mysterious barriers to effective learning, whom you just can’t seem to get through to?

…Have you ever had thoughts like these:

“Why do some children learn to read almost immediately, while other – bright – children not only find reading difficult, but stumble on some of the most basic words such as ‘if’ and ‘at’?”

 

“Why are there children who can’t learn their times tables, however often they try?”

 

“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, sometimes just hours or even minutes later?”

 

“Why are there children who, however hard I try to make my lesson entertaining and accessible, just switch off, or worse, sabotage my efforts and their own learning with seemingly pointless disruptive behaviour?”

Would you like to:

  • Understand the reasons why some bright children may struggle to acquire basic academic skills;

  • Use these insights to make an incisive difference to the abilities, well-being and prospects of these children in your classroom;

  • Acquire insights and approaches that enable you to stimulate both academically able and academically challenged children at the same time;

  • Give disruptive and impulsive children better control of their focus and behaviour;

  • Make a valuable difference to children who, while they may be academically able, have difficulty in areas such as sitting still, controlling hand-eye coordination, succeeding at sports, learning from consequences, or reading people?

'A Taste of Davis Discovery Series' is a complimentary series designed to offer insights, approaches and strategies to assist you achieving any or all of these goals.​ It is crafted from the findings of 'Why Tyrannosaurus But Not If?', a culmination of thousands of specialist hours spent observing and working with both 'typical' and 'atypical' learners.

And it's free.

Subscribe to 'A Taste of Davis', and you will gain:

  • Understanding of why learning sometimes happens, and sometimes doesn’t;

  • Cutting-edge insights into why a bright child can fail dramatically, and puzzlingly, to master a basic skill – and what can be done about it;

  • Innovative Tips and Strategies that make your life easier while enhancing the results of all your students.

You will learn a blueprint for reaching all the children in your classroom at the same time. You will discover how the mysteriously “learning-disabled” child at the back of the class can become our mentor, leading us on to new heights of teaching ability that benefit “front” and “back” of class alike.

 

You will learn why some children switch off, becoming demoralised and sometimes disruptive; and how to re-engage them.

 

The course instalments themselves are short enough to be read in the middle of a busy day.
