Empower Your Students with Our Learning Strategies Playbook in 2024

Introduction

As we enter the new year of 2024, it's hard to believe how quickly time has flown by. Looking back, I still remember the days when ACP was just a small LLC that I used for consulting work. The pandemic had disrupted everything, and the sudden shift to virtual learning left many of us feeling lost and uncertain. However, during this turbulent time, my colleague and friend Kristy came up with a brilliant idea - to write a free ebook for educators that would provide strategies for collaboration in a virtual and socially-distanced world. Then, the person who insisted she would never want to write anything EVER roped Gina and me into it because we all just wanted to help. 


Looking back, it's hard to believe it has been four years since it began. However, despite the challenges and uncertainties, ACP has continued to grow yearly. Working with different districts, schools, teachers, and organizations has been a privilege to help students navigate this ever-changing world. As we move into this new year, I look forward to continuing this journey and positively impacting students' lives.


Returning to the Beginning

Unfortunately, teaching has become more challenging over the years, but we know educators like you are still giving it your all. That's why we like to show our appreciation by giving out freebies at the end of each calendar year to recognize your hard work and dedication. In the past two years, we've created workbooks focused on self-care and gratitude, which were a big hit. However, this year, we wanted to do something different and offer strategies that could specifically help in the classroom. We're excited to share this with you and hope it can make your job a little easier.


In September of this year, Gina wrote the blog High-Quality PD: Dive into Criteria & Effective Learning Strategies, and within the blog, we named a bunch of learning strategies we often use in our professional development and put them in our store as free resources. We were blown away by how many times that has been downloaded since September.


It got us thinking that putting them all together as one resource would be helpful rather than trying to think of things you need now. I don't know about you, but I need help remembering what I had for lunch today, so trying to remember the specific name of a strategy I have used in the past can be a challenge. That's why we got your back! We put all of our favorite strategies together in one place so you can easily access them whenever you need them. No more stressing out over what amazing strategy you used last year or the steps you took! Let us make your life easier and more organized with our Learning Strategies Playbook.


Learning Strategies Playbook

We reviewed all of our professional learning events and selected the strategies that will be useful in creating a constructivist and learner-centered classroom. It was an enjoyable experience to go through this process as there were some strategies I had not used in a while and had forgotten about. It reaffirmed my belief that this was the right approach, and having all the strategies in one location is really helpful.


As an educator, we understand that you want to create a positive learning environment that empowers your students to thrive. Whether you are a seasoned teacher looking for new or rediscovering ways to enrich your teaching methods or a newcomer searching for guidance on fostering a lively classroom, we are here to support you. That's why we've created this playbook, which provides a toolbox of strategies to help you enhance the educational experience for your students and encourage them to take an active role in their learning journey. We know that teaching can be challenging, and we want you to know that you are doing a great job already. It should be noted that all of these strategies are not new, but the ones we've picked are designed to make your classroom even better. We hope they will give you the confidence and reassurance you need to continue making a positive difference in your students' lives.


In the playbook, you will have access to a carefully selected set of learning strategies that are organized for easy navigation. Each strategy will have a clear purpose, providing insights into how it can positively impact your class dynamics. You will also find actionable steps to follow, which will help you not only understand the strategies better but also apply them practically.
