Learning is For Life
Don wrote “Building Wings” to help students build self-confidence. Through personal stories, students can identify with Don’s struggles as a learner. He used valuable lessons learned from his 8th grade teacher to show how students can advocate for themselves and learn in different ways. Don also wrote “Building Wings” as a reminder for teachers, parents and other faculty that individual learning needs and behavioral signs can be disguised.
“Building Wings” is often used as a reading supplement and professional development resource. It is a must-read for struggling learners, teachers, faculty and parents. Get your copy of “Building Wings” for free, and share it with your school and community groups.
Don has made it his pursuit to develop tools to better human learning because he believes that learning isn’t the endgame—it’s just the beginning. Watch or read more about what we mean by Learning is For Life, and let’s keep asking the question “What would you do if you could learn anything?”
