rationale
RATIONALE
  • Everyone faces this problem
  • Believe that everyone is not the same – cater to different learning needs

The problem faced

How do we cater to the students on extreme ends: too fast vstoo slow

school background
SCHOOL BACKGROUND
  • SK SRI DAMAI, PJ
  • POPULATION: 253 Students

20 Teachers

  • CLASS : Kindergarten– Year 6

even have class for the special needs students

  • 1 class for every level
  • Average students: 28 – 38 students
  • Include inclusive students (Autistic students)

Every class have at least 2 – 3 students (a teacher aid is provided to them)

mixed abilities
MIXED ABILITIES?
  • Case study: Year 2A
  • Number of students: 35 + 3 (autism students)
  • 23 boys and 15 girls

Language level

  • 10 (very good)

They can do and finish their work without having much difficulty – early finishers

  • 14 (average)

Can still do it with a little bit of help

  • 14 (very weak)

Need extra help in understanding the task given – need more time to complete task

why is it a problem
WHY IS IT A PROBLEM
  • Couldn’t focus on all of them at one go
  • If we focus on one group (the weak ones), others would go haywire
  • If we try to cater to either one, the class would still go haywire
  • RESULT: CHAOTIC
  • E.g. spelling
what the school does
WHAT THE SCHOOL DOES
  • Remedial class for BahasaMelayu and mathematics
  • Focus on Year 2 & 3
  • For slow learners who are slow in reading and counting
  • English, the English teachers have extra class with them (Yr 6)
how we solve it
HOW WE SOLVE IT
  • Differentiation  different task sheets for different level
  • Early finishers  enrichment activities

e.g. word puzzle, find-the-word etc

  • During practice stage  call the slow learner to teacher’s table for extra help
  • Cooperative learning  the good ones help the weak ones
effectiveness
EFFECTIVENESS
  • Differentiation  Yes (pitched to right level)
  • Early finishers  Yes but they tend to finish their work even faster to do the extra task
  • During practice stage  Yes to a certain extent

(must have good classroom control)

  • Cooperative learning  Yes to a certain extent

(too many weak students to be handled noisy)

conclusion
CONCLUSION
  • As teachers we should be aware of our students’ background and abilities
  • Thus, we need to cater to their needs by pitching the lesson to the right level
  • As teachers we should be willing to do extra work; prepare different task sheets
  • We should always have extra enrichment activities ready in case of early finishers
