At the beginning of the school year this student was failing almost every spelling test and now he’s getting 100s on them. He had a dread in his eyes every time I passed one back, but now his confidence has blossomed.
What’s the secret? Studying! I know that’s shocking, isn’t it?
When of the challenging things in education is teaching children how to learn; not just the facts. The key to retaining information is memorization which requires daily practice. This year in Religion class, I have adapted the pace of the lessons so that students can spend more time learning how to learn. Practice. Practice. Practice.
I don’t know who had the bigger smile that day the boy earned the 100% on his test, he or I, but I do
know that it was a victorious day for both of us!
