Repetition Builds Skill: Supporting Successful Teaching/Learning Routines

Some routines that successful students employ are not employed by other students.


Simply put, there was not enough repetition, feedback, and support to establish those routines for all students.

How can we change that?

Identify the routines that successful students employ. Prioritize the teaching and learning of those routines with the entire learning community including students, family members, educators, and leaders at the start of the year. Be vigilant about coaching those routines in the first weeks of school.

Establishing successful learning/teaching routines at the start of the year is essential to student success.
