Advantages of Using LAPs

LAP modules empower students to develop leadership, enhance career knowledge, and build relevant skillsets that have real impact on their futures. LAP modules will help you:

  • Save time with complete, ready-to-use lessons that include everything you need.
  • Teach what matters using content that is based on what business leaders say is most significant—and that is tested/reviewed by real teachers and instructors.
  • Ensure quality, aligned curriculum that relates directly to competencies.
  • Engage students with relevant examples, interactive activities, and up-to-date links.
  • Prepare students for the future with the rigorous and relevant knowledge and skill sets they need that will provide value for college and career.
  • Improve test scores by going deeper into each subject than traditional textbooks, which improves content mastery.
  • Become the expert on any topic you have to teach with clear, informative explanations.
  • Connect directly to work-based learning.
  • Gear up for competitive events using role-play scenarios and assessments similar to those students encounter in competitions.

Using LAPs for Differentiated Instruction

Each LAP allows for differentiation and varying student learning styles, and supports traditional classroom pedagogy, project-based learning, and flipped instruction.

Each LAP features:

  • Two individual and two group activities
    • First individual and group activities: Relatively short, focused on basic concepts introduced in the LAP.
    • Second individual and group activities: More complex, require more time and critical-thinking skills.
    • Activities can be assigned to different students according to their learning styles and abilities.
  • Glossary
    • Teachers, especially those with English Language Learners, tell us the glossary is helpful for differentiated instruction.
    • These teachers typically share the glossary with their students early in their work on the LAP so that students can refer to the glossary when they run across unfamiliar words in the core narrative.
  • Core narrative, discussion guide, and PowerPoint presentation
    • Our instructional modules accommodate a variety of learning types.
    • Verbal/Linguistic learners comprehend the material best when they read the core narrative.
    • Auditory learners understand the material best when the teacher uses the discussion guide to present content.
    • Visual learners appreciate viewing the PowerPoint presentation.
    • Kinesthetic learners learn best when they are actively involved in a hands-on individual or group activity.

The activities are engaging for students and give a great variety for teachers to use depending how in depth you want to go into the subject and how you need to differentiate.
