Learning Support in Middle School Maths - HELP!

Discussion in 'Mathematics' started by Stooby68, May 5, 2011.

  1. I am teaching a mixed ability middle school maths class, teaching all of Year 8 (100+ kids) in an international school. In the majority of classes I have kids working at the appropriate level or above. However in each class I have one or two students who are working at a Year 5 level.

    My learning support unit is not providing much support and I'm really struggling giving these students what they need whilst covering the needs of the other students - does anyone have any bright ideas or any programmes they know of that maybe suitable? Ultimately they need basic skill consolidation - any middle school learning support programmes out there?

    Appreciate some advice as I feel like I'm really letting these students down.
