The students like the predictability of the procedures in each lesson. They enjoy the active participation of standing at the whiteboard and practicing the skills, during the learning sessions. They also look forward to working on the computer and completing the lessons through technology.
I have a 6th grade student who has struggled with reading for quite some time. He is also very jaded and verbalizes his dislike for school. Even though he will test the boundaries from time to time during our reading lessons, he does become engaged in the learning process. He enjoys the success that he has with the work being asked of him. He enjoy working on the computer program, as well as the rest of my student. They ask to use the computer program quite often.
