Would love to hear some stories out of ID "Invisible Red Tape." a book deal I signed with Simon and Schuster to with a focus on the difficulties that the #1in5 face with the broken education system.

#ask Please share your story about the outrageous obstacles you had to overcome fighting for the educational rights of your dyslexic child.

We are collecting stories to showcase the breadth and depth of the issues across the nation, and ultimately, to spur change so every child has access to the resources they need to thrive.

Lee Pesky Learning Center is proud to partner with CapEd Federal Credit Union each year to support early literacy work in Idaho.

Recently, our very own Christianne Lane was able to speak to the early literacy work that CapEd has supported for the Center when she was interviewed by KBOI2. The video is linked below (see the Center at the 3:48 minute mark!).

We are grateful to the CapEd team for their continued investment in our work!
Beautiful picture in every way.

Self-regulated learners are connected, self-aware, resilient, self-determined and strategic. Today we will be highlighting the ‘Resilient’ component of the SRL framework.

No matter how prepared a student may be, setbacks and challenges are inevitable. In fact, experiencing and confronting setbacks can help us learn to persevere in the face of obstacles. Resilience is supported by emotion regulation and cognitive flexibility, which means regulating emotional responses to challenges and then thinking differently about an approach when it is not working. Resilience is also developed when students can build their confidence through small successes. These small successes provide positive experiences so students can persevere when taking on more challenging tasks.

Self-regulated learners are connected, self-aware, resilient, self-determined and strategic. Today we will be highlighting the ‘Self-Determined’ component of the SRL framework.

Self-determination is what helps students become independent, life-long learners. Self-determined students set goals, make plans that help them achieve their goals, and also monitor their own progress so they can adjust if needed.

Self-determination also means students have agency over the learning process. When students have ownership over their learning goals, their internal motivation increases and they are more likely to be successful learners.

Self-regulated learners are connected, self-aware, self-determined, strategic, and resilient. Today we will be highlighting the ‘Self-Aware’ component of the SRL framework.

Self-aware students understand their unique strengths and needs as learners and are aware of how their feelings and behavior can affect their learning. Students who are self-aware respond better to educational intervention, are more likely to achieve their goals, and can advocate for their needs.

Self-regulated learners are connected, self-aware, self-determined, strategic, and resilient. Today we will be highlighting the ‘Connected’ component of the SRL framework. 👫🤝

Connected children learn best when there is a trusted adult who is responsive to their needs. Children need to be able to trust their parent/teacher and feel that they are in a safe and supported environment. 🙌🤗

Self-Regulated Learning Project

Q: What is Self-Regulated Learning?

Broadly speaking, “self-regulation” is defined as having the ability to control your thoughts, feelings, and behavior in the pursuit of a goal.

Lee Pesky Learning Center understands that students and children arrive to the larger learning process with a wide range of skills and abilities across the concept of being self-regulated.

Ensuring Bilingual Idaho Kids Aren't Left Behind After The Pandemic

Our CEO, Dr. Evelyn Johnson, shared about how our Pathways to Literacy Program is serving as a direct response to school closures amidst the COVID-19 pandemic on #IdahoMatters this week.

The conversation also includes a heart-warming share from an LPLC parent, Maria. When asked how her son's learning has been impacted by this program, Maria said, "This program is very good for my son, Jesus, because he started kindergarten 90% Spanish and 10% English. So, my son was not reading almost nothing in English. When he started the program, he started basically at zero, because he didn't understand anything for reading in English. So, this program is good for him and me."

These are the powerful stories that drive our mission to understand and overcome obstacles to learning for every student.

Ensuring Bilingual Idaho Kids Aren't Left Behind After The Pandemic Learning to read is a foundational skill critical to success in school and life. Idaho’s Lee Pesky Learning Center created a pilot program to address students with bilingual learning needs at risk of being left behind as the pandemic altered education this year.
