Brooklyn Junior High earns award
from University of Kansas
The University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning has recognized Brooklyn Junior High for its “remarkable” implementation of the Strategic Instruction Model (SIM). SIM helps students learn and teachers teach more effectively.
The SIM Impact award letter noted “the work that has been carried out at Brooklyn [Junior] for over 25 years has been most impressive and serves as a model for others to follow.”
This summer, Brooklyn Junior representatives will visit the University of Kansas to do a short presentation about their work, meet with Center for Research and Learning researchers and be recognized at a formal award ceremony.
