Subject: Re: Re: slow learner

The words "slow learner" are totally inappropriate and unfair.  Some
students just learn in a different mode than the standard one.  We
must try to realize this when presenting a math lesson to the class. 
Some need to illustrate their work in order to "see" what the problem
is asking of them, some need to underline with colored ink, some need
to have the key words explained or written down in their notes, some
need extra time to complete the assignment.  It is challenging for the
teacher, but can one imagine how stressful it is for the student who
is afraid of math!!!
