3D Learner Capitalizes on Your Child's Strengths
and Identifies and Addresses Their Challenges
60% of the 10th Graders passed the 10th Grade Reading FCAT last year. This year only 50% passed the 10th Grade FCAT.
Many people objected to the changes in the 10th Grade FCAT. The Department of Education Response to the challenges that kids may face was both accurate and infuriating
Deputy Education Commissioner Kris Ellington noted that if students don't pass the exam in the 10th grade, they still have two more years to try. She said the goal is to reduce college remediation rates.
For students who failed the 10th Grade FCAT -- that is the 10th Grade Reading FCAT, the outlook is more challenging. This year, those taking the 10th Grade Retake were trying to meet the old lower standard - for those retaking the 10th Grade FCAT - 10th Grade Reading FCAT in the fall, they will have to meet the new higher cut scores
3D Learner -- An Answer for the 10th Grade FCAT
3D Learner was born when a school official told our daughter she was not college material. "I developed the 3D Learner Program (R) to help my daughter", says Mira Halpert M.Ed., "and I became ...
A mom on a mission!!!
and Julie improved her reading comprehension 4.2 grade levels in 7 months and never had to worry about an FCAT or FCAT like test ever again"
For 10th graders, we have helped students to pass both the 10th Grade Reading FCAT and the 10th Grade Math FCAT. We have helped students to pass the 10th Grade FCAT where they were reading several years below grade level
Most smart students who struggle with the 10th Grade FCAT are visual-experiential learners, who learn best when they see and experience information. We call these students right-brained learners. Right-brained learners think from whole to part, they need to be taught differently, and they can often do very well on the FCAT, with the right training.
62% of the students today are right-brained learners.
Right-brained learners who struggle with the 10th Grade FCAT often have 3, 4 or 5 of the following challenges:
They often have problems with
1- Sight word vocabulary - words like but, what, except and but, recognizing words they have previously "learned", and with tricky tests, like the FCAT
2- Paying attention for long periods of time. Some may have ADHD, but most smart struggling students just have difficulty paying attention to that which is boring or frustrating -- the FCAT is boring and the FCAT experience is frustrating
3- Test Anxiety -- nright-brained learners tense up when someone says, "pass the FCAT or else".
4- Processing speed -- most right-brained learners process the whole picture versus the words -- this takes longer. On timed tests like the FCAT, the combination of test anxiety and/or processing speed challenges causes major challenges
5- Skipping words and lines when reading -- sometimes called tracking issues
What 3D Learner does that is far different than most is:
- We assess for learning differences, attention, anxiety, processing speed and tracking issues
- We teach the way a right-brained learner learns. We have a philosophy -- Right-Brained Programs for Right-Brained Students
- We address the attention, test anxiety, processing speed and tracking issues, where appropriate
