Why Should Teachers Remediate?

Remediation with Holler for Mastro LLC

As brilliant as some students are, they do not pick up everything that a teacher teaches. Remediation can help students review information they may never have picked up or it can help students remember content they have forgotten from previous lessons. Repetition and remediation of information is key for memories especially for students who have certain learning disabilities. The more we as teachers can repeat information in our classrooms the more students will retain.

Don’t give up or have lower expectations for the students that need remediation. Every student can learn but it may take one students 100 times the amount of exposure to the curriculum. It is our job as teachers to give them different ways to continue to be exposed. Obviously we can’t just stay on one piece of information all year until everyone in the class gets it. However, we can provide ways to remediate and study at home to continue their learning.

How do You Know If a Student Needs Remediation?

A simple quiz works best to find out if a class or a specific student needs remediation for the content presented in class. It doesn’t need to be a formal quiz and can take place more often if it’s not. Teachers need every moment in class that they can get.  Remediation can be a quick question and answer session between the teacher and the students or a ticket out the door asking students what they learned in class and a question they have about it. Tickets out the door can also answer specific questions that the teacher wants to check on. Both help teachers find out what students learned in a mini-lesson. A more formal quiz, perhaps at the end of the week, can alert teachers of the content that has been forgotten by students. Writing can be used as a tool to find out what content hasn’t been retained and what content remediation is needed on. Assign your students to write an expository paragraph about a subject and you’ll find out quickly who needs remediation and who doesn’t.
