Students LEAD

Learn, Explore, & Advocate Differently

Designed by the Friday Institute of Educational Innovation at NC State University

This course is based on the idea that we all learn differently, which is a new and challenging idea for many people. It's likely that you or your teachers are more used to a "one-size-fits-all" approach to teaching and learning, and so this idea might seem a bit strange at first.

To help you grow more comfortable with it, you will:

  • Learn about your own learning.
  • Learn to lead the way as you define success for yourself in school, extra-curricular activities, or at home with family and friends.
  • See how older students have learned how they learn best.
  • Talk to other students from all around the country who are figuring all of this out for themselves, too.
