So far this year I have created numerous “handouts” to help students overcome learning gaps. I create each handout as I see the learning gap in one student. Then I have the handout for when I see the same learning gap in other students. In my writing course, I’ve created handouts for such topics as topic sentences, thesis statements, plurals, run-ons, and fragments. I had to go down to the “ground zero” in writing the handouts- providing many examples, providing simple practice (with answers on the other side), etc. to guide the student through the learning gap. I only give out the handouts to those students who display the specific learning gap. I’m glad that I’m building up a library so that next semester I will be able to help more students.
