I have a lot of very low students in my classes. On a particular test we use statewide, they core below 10% of the State average for their grade. Most are below the 50% mark. These students are generally ESL and likely lost the opportunity to learn many basic skills in lower grades than 7th grade that I teach. As I listened to the presentation, it occurred to me that they may still be in the concrete area for learning. Giving them concrete examples just may be the boost they need to bridge over to the abstract understanding of the concepts I am teaching. Thanks!
