A recent developments of the Davis methods is Davis Learning Strategies (DLS). In four days or less, we train primary school teachers in applying our methods in the classroom when teaching ALL students. A study published in 2001 showed that instead of the national average of 15% special needs referrals, the DLS classes had not a single special needs referral. Furthermore, instead of the national average of 5% gifted referrals, the DLS classes had an average of 20% gifted referrals – four times the national average.
Immediate Excellence within DLS Model Schools
In the year 2006, Elbert Elementary school’s third grade reading scores went straight from the worst to the best of all schools in the Pikes Peak district in Colorado, US, – immediately after 17 staff members were trained in using DLS. The school has retained their leading position for two years now. See more here.
Walsh Elementary is a small, underfunded, rural school in Colorado serving preschool through sixth grades. They introduced DLS in 2003, and four years later – against all odds – they had the highest reading scores in the state of Colorado, with 89% of the children scoring at or above grade level proficiency.
