We’ve made it our personal mission to impact the children who need us the most, and we are doing this through Action Based Learning! 3L is our mission to impact the lives of the students thought of as Least likely to succeed, Last in line at recess, & Lost in the system. We believe in
Least Last Lost --> First, Foremost, Found
The 3L training is for all K-12 educators to stand with us in our mission and learn strategies and teaching methods to make an impact on students - specifically the 3L students. If you are an educator working with disadvantaged students, this training is a MUST!!
How do I know if this training is for me?
Do you have students who...have difficulty sitting still? Do you have students who exhibit off task behaviors? Does your school need to raise test scores? Are you looking for opportunities to increase learning and decrease off task behavior? If so, you don’t want to miss this!
Are you looking to Increase Learning & Improve Classroom Culture?
This is not a program, but a paradigm shift in thinking and teaching. 3L training is designed to assist and support you as an educator to develop a better understanding of your students, particularly those that leave you with your hands in the air saying, “I have tried everything! What now?!”. Understanding the complexities of poverty and the behaviors that are often associated with it, enable you to identify the issue and use appropriate strategies to reduce most common misbehaviors. You will leave this training with a positive and proactive approach to improving your classroom climate!
