REPEAT, REPEAT, REPEAT. RESTATE, RESTATE, RESTATE. RETELL, RETELL, RETELL – from Rory Donaldson, reading teacher
Can you imagine a great artist being told, "Stop repeating that passage. Stop restating that theme. Stop retelling that story?" Great artists know all about repeating, restating and retelling each part to mastery. Repetition is one of their greatest teaching tools. Sure, it can be frustrating to repeat to Little Billy for the 80th time, "Bill, for the …"
But whose fault is it that L.B. isn't paying attention? Did he ever agree to pay attention? Great teaching starts with "cooperation" before tackling additional instruction.
"Repeat, repeat, repeat, Restate, restate, restate. Retell, retell, retell." This is one of the many Royal Roads to teaching excellence.
