How to Create Remediation Stations

Suppose for a moment that you were teaching someone to ride a bicycle. After a week of teaching and practice, you gave that child a test and discovered that she could not stop well, had trouble balancing, and every time she turned to the left she fell down. What would you do? Would you try to reteach her these skills so that she could become proficient? Or would you progress her to the next skill by handing her a unicycle?

Teachers often feel stuck on how to proceed after teaching a unit, realizing that many in the class have not sufficiently grasped the material? Do you move on, leaving many behind? Or do you reteach, slowing many others down?

The answer is in Remediation Stations, which allow the teacher to differentiate – reaching every student where they are, in a systematic and sufficient way.
