speakerWhat People Are Saying

Throughout implementation of my lesson, I am always watching my students to see who needs assistance. For example, several of my students have challenges with their writing, so when I am monitoring them during work time, I will stop for a few moments and assist them using a hand-over-hand technique so that they can see and feel how they are supposed to be writing. -- Heather Gomez
