APPROACHES TO LEARNING

The Approaches to Learning content category in ARIS includes lessons that provide a foundation for students to succeed in the rest of the program. In short, these lessons help a student learn how to learn.

Developing children’s abilities in the Approaches to Learning category prepares them for future learning, and many of the Approaches to Learning lessons are prerequisites for the lessons in the other 6 categories. As such, this is often the first place you will start with children who are new to the program.

The Approaches to Learning content category has seven sub-categories.
