Remedial teaching is teaching tailored to the child according to his special needs, difficulties and abilities.
Remedial teaching is an approach that helps children having trouble integrating in the general curriculum with children of their age. This is a unique teaching method for language subjects with large texts: history, Bible, literature, language and articulation, geography, and more.
The children’s difficulty to concentrate on something they do not consider interesting or particularly attractive, causes them to lose interest and look for an alternative, and thus may arouse the major opposition among those facing them. As a result, you will hear such statements as, “The student is intelligent, but does not realize his potential,” “the student disturbs the class,” “The student does not concentrate” ….
Remedial teaching is a method generated mainly to deal with these kinds of situations, where children lose interest in traditional classical education that does not satisfy their needs.
The teacher learns various tools of experiential learning through games and creative tools. In this manner, the teacher learns different methods of teaching in small groups or individually, and has the possibility of speaking to the child in a language that meets his needs, thus gaining his confidence and his participation in the learning process.
After learning the basics of reading and writing, dealing with difficulties by adopting various “learning strategies” is taught. Again, it is important to match approach and learning strategies appropriate to each child.
This offers the teacher, trained in remedial teaching, the many tools it needs to play and improve the child’s capabilities, develop his abilities and what he knows, and challenges him in such a way as to raise his threshold of success, and thus enhance his self-image.
