The key to motivating struggling learners
from By: Howard Margolis (commentary)
Should teachers recommend the promotion of struggling learners to the next grade if they've worked hard but achieved little? The answer is yes, but provide learners with whatever supports they need. Needed supports may well include preteaching, mentoring, cooperative learning, peer teaching, active co-teaching and 1-1 tutoring. For all such learners, it will require individual and group activities, homework and materials at their proper instructional and independent levels.
