Anchorage School District

Information is presented to students who SEE it, SAY it, HEAR it, and FEEL it as their hands WRITE it.Multi-Sensory Instruction (MSI)

The Multi-Sensory Instruction approach teaches the student HOW to learn by teaching traditional subject matter in a non-traditional manner. It does not cure learning difficulties…it "goes around" it.

As students take in information, they SEE it, SAY it, HEAR it, and FEEL it as their hands WRITE it. The MSI trained teacher bases lesson plans on individual needs. MSI teachers may use supportive software to provide additional practice. Current brain research supports this type of instruction for students struggling in reading, writing, and spelling.
