Subject: Re: Re: Identifying slow learners and lazy learners

From: B. Wilson <espamcatcher@myway.com> Subject: Re: Identifying slow learners and lazy learners I have noticed when given shortened projects that can be completed quickly, slow learners may not learn as much as fast learners but can still absorb core concepts. A sense of accomplishment seems to act as a great ego boost and powers the slow learner into the next project. I am trying to find the right balance of proven techniques for a "test subject" I am working with. Thoughts? Suggestions? Comments? To: B. Wilson Subject: Re: Identifying slow learners and lazy learners You said "I am trying to find the right balance of proven techniques for a "test subject" I am working with." and wanted thoughts suggestions and comments. You will find the "DotMath for kids" material will be very helpful in explaining math. You can make the lesson shorter for the slow learners but the lesson plan can be adjusted to help all students (k-4) learn math faster. The grapics are large to help the student focus on the lesson material and you can download them from the "Dotmath for kids" website for free. Type "dotmath for kids" into you web search box and you will be able to find the site.
