It is a way to live so where one does not overtake others all the time with their needs only.
I am coming from a school that used the 7 keys of Success from Quantum Learning at low cost and I absolutely love teaching them, however I want to add a little more in my character-building program so I am looking at LiM. As of this date there exists NO peer reviewed quantitative research to support the efficacy of this program. I am a middle school teacher. It takes away from instruction and I am not seeing the rewards.
My decision to spend this money was based on research, specifically research about the brain. I thought they were too young to understand things like that but they have managed to figure it all out on their own, and I would venture to bet they are not the only ones.
As to the poem about buzzards and bees… well… unless I misread your intent I was a bit hurt that I was being referred to as a buzzard! So thanks to all for some needed insight.
I handed out hundreds of informational flyers outlining the many problems with this program FranklinCovey was not happy! Because we combine LIM with Kagan cooperative learning structures, our students are engaged and in charge of their learning. The District leadership praised this superficial display as evidence of a great program.
I think this program will not work in my district To many kids come from broken homes and parents who are not around when kids come home from school.
We are also a school with a tremendous amount of parental involvement and support due to the community area. At my school, it is all a show. The whole thing is a joke. Perhaps the real reason the little boy who left the performing arts school for a leader in me school LOVES it is because it involves A LOT of student led performing— acting, dancing, singing, learning lines for tours, etc, etc, etc, blah blah,—.
What are we going to do with that one chance? They may stem from values we believe in, but they are not the doctrine of our church.
All Rights Reserved. It worked on me and lots of the other people I toured with. The Leader in Me is basically a philosophy that schools are taught to weave into every aspect of the school day.
