How would you help a student stay motivated?
A great way to help students stay motivated is to create lessons that interest the student. For example, if they like playing hockey, going to the movies, or Minecraft, then I would create lessons with those topics.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
There are several ways to help struggling students. Using scaffolding, differentiated instruction, graphic organizers, and mnemonics, as well as slowing down, or using props and pictures.
How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?
One great way to help students who are struggling with reading comprehension is to help them connect what they already know or their lives to what they are reading.
