Worth the wait, take 2

One of my priority learners, who sat their first maths assessment last week was successful and gained 4 credits. His whole demeanour has since changed (for the better) and he is now more vocal about his learning needs and very specific about the support that he needs. Less than a week a later, he is now sitting his second assessment.

My takeaway is that parental support and teacher belief in the student has had the greatest impact on this learner's achievement in conjunction with giving the learner subject-specific skills eg literacy strategies and teaching and learning strategies.

My follow-up after the learner gained credits, was to contact whanau via phone and send a congratulatory postcard home.
