Focusing on Integrated Skills with an Assets Based Approach

Pearls of Wisdom

Focusing on Integrated Skills with an Assets Based Approach


For over 30 years international school leaders, teachers, and counselors have come together for PTC professional learning experiences. Each day of every program begins with a 'pearl of wisdom,' a 'nugget of knowledge,' or a 'gem of inspiration' from one of the participants. We are delighted to offer our readers around the world these powerful stories, insights, and strategies, all dedicated to our shared mission of ever more and better learning for our children.  

In this Pearl, Kathy suggests that moving from a more “medical” or individual skill-based model to a broader model based on looking at the “assets” of the learner is far more helpful in determining next steps strategies for the learner.
