A week ago I posted my concerns about working a couple of students too hard. I saw them again tonight. Predictably, a big improvement.
Looking over the assignments from last week I saw my main comment to both was to slow down and be accurate. I type up the assignments on my laptop as the lesson progresses, then print them and stick them in the binder. Evidently I was a bit hasty and inaccurate in giving the headline instructions to one student:
Oct 10 If you’re mistakes, you’re going too fast.
Clowning Around - SLOW DOWN and read accurately. Aim for efficient practice.
Intrada – grade 5 page 6 – HS once a day then HT a few times. You MUST keep it very slow so that you learn it accurately…
I’m trusting that if he actually read it, he understood what I meant.
