Remember MacGyver? That secret government agent who used everyday objects, and the ever-present Swiss Army knife, to solve complicated problems?
For the last three weeks, students in Springer’s Adventures in Summer Learning program have been learning how to MacGyver school. These are students who struggle to do what others find easy, because they may have a learning disability or ADHD. At Springer, they’ve been learning alternative ways to accomplish reading, writing and math tasks, and strategies for managing the things that hold them back from success in school.
As the program draws near to the end, students are writing down the strategies and tools they’ve learned that are helping the most. Here’s what they had to say.
By the end of the program, students have their own customized toolbox for learning!
