Yes, you know; the people who are tasked with supporting, guiding, directing, and inspiring them.
Oh, Dr. Roddy, you mean their teachers?
Yes and no.
Certainly, a student's teachers are an important part of the learning team, but they do not make up the entire group.
Here are some other possibilities to consider.
- parents and/or other family members
- the principal
- academic advisers
- former teachers with whom the student stays in touch
Ask a student to name the people that are tasked with helping them and see how many they can name. Do you see a potential relationship between success in school and the number/diversity of students' learning team members?
