Coping With Slow Learners
Throughout my teaching career both in Cameroon and Thailand respectively, I have realized with a lot of dismay
that no matter how excellent a teachers is, no matter how effective his teaching methods are, some student will always find it
hard to understand and will always go back home with empty heads or will grasp just little knowledge from the lessons
taught in school. This article is an attempt to answer the following questions; who are slow learners? What are the factors
that cause some students to be slow learners? How can we identify slow learners? And lastly, how can teachers cope with
slow learners. My objective in this article is to really understand who slow learners are. I will also bring out the needs of
slow learners and how to meet them.
