Strategic Instruction Model™

 Strategic Instruction Model logo

The Strategic Instruction Model™ (SIM™) is an integrated model of research-validated practices that addresses the needs of diverse learners, primarily adolescents. SIM™ has been developed through rigorous, on-going research at the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning (KU-CRL). The Strategic Instruction Model™ consists of learning strategies and routines.  The Learning Strategies (student-centered) are used with students to help in the mastery of basic skills, while the Content Enhancement Routines (teacher-centered) are used with whole class instruction to help teachers make content meaningful and memorable for students.

SIM™ may be accessed as part of the Virginia Tiered Systems of Support (VTSS) or through Training and Technical Assistance Center at William & Mary’s (TTAC W&M) work with your school.
