Subject: Re: Re: Possible teaching strategies in classroom for slow learner in mathemetics

  Very often slow learners are so because they may lack in the past
knowledge required for the lesson taught. 
 Quite often it works 1) if we ask short question which life related
and connected to the lesson
 2) explain the previous knowledge/concept ( in short)  needed to
understand the lesson

 3) interact with the so called slow learner directly and allow them
to think and address the problem at his own pace

 4) give credit and encourage  even if a part of the problem is solved
by him
