Remedial teachers should identify pupils’ diverse learning needs as soon as possible so that they may design appropriate teaching plans to facilitate pupils’ effective learning.
Devise various learning activities
Since pupils have different characteristics in learning, teachers must devise different learning activities with the same teaching objective to develop pupils’ varied abilities and skills in problem solving. It is more effective for teachers to adopt a series of relevant and simple teaching activities than assigning one long teaching activity since pupils may acquire the required knowledge and skills through diversified activities.
Design meaningful learning situations-
Remedial teachers specifically design meaningful learning situations, language environments, games or activities so as to provide personal learning experiences for pupils and stimulate their interest and initiative in learning.
Pupils with learning difficulties are less competent in understanding written language. Therefore remedial teacher gives short and clear instructions to avoid confusion. They explain clearly the arrangement of each learning activity. If necessary, they ask students to repeat the steps of activities such that every pupil understands the instructions.
The homework should have clear objectives and can accommodate the level and needs of students. The form and contents of homework should be of a great variety so as to develop students creativity, self-learning and collaborative skills.
