Making a successful learning to students of mixed ability

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Through interviews, course evaluation and reflective exercises, this paper aims to examine some strategic measures used by schools and teachers in organizing remedial support to academically low achievers in Hong Kong. The discussion covers the current mode of practices, support, training, vision, perceptions of special needs, successful experience and difficulties in organizing learning support. It is found that teachers have frustration in enhancing learning motivation, promoting positive behaviour and improving academic achievement in junior forms. However, they still hold optimistic views in teaching students of mixed ability. The paper concludes with SCOPA changes in making learning successful.
