Some children are born with cognitive impairment.
Some have poor study habits.

We can form study groups to improve literacy and numeracy & also to help with homework.
We need to establish individual learning goals to meet the needs of each student and lead them to the next stage.

A large number of students fall under this category due to the diverse range of learning/physical abilities
20/25% of students have some sort of learning disability. These include intellectual, physical or sensory deficits, emotional or behavioural difficulties and inadequate environmental experiences

students get bored if curriculum is unstimulating

bright students get bored if they are not challenged

competitive testing/NAPLAN environment inhibits individual learning

-KEEP OUR KIDS HAPPY AND ENJOYING LEARNING!

DEFIANCE
Is the classroom
too hot?
too cold?
too humid?
too bright?
too dark?
MAYBE WE NEED TO ADJUST CLASS TIMES TO SUIT?
Learn in the mornings?
LAYOUT OF THE ROOM
- is it teacher-centric or democratic?
- Is it catering for visual learners (who like to sit up front?)
- can everyone see the teacher/whiteboard/audio visual?
THE TEACHER NEEDS TO CREATE A LEARNING ENVIRONMENT THAT ENCOURAGES ACTIVE ENGAGEMENT!

Parental attitudes
Academic performance of students heavily depends upon the parental involvement
Poor study habits and lower attendance positively correlated with poor academic achievement
Varies greatly from student to student
Influenced by family and home environments as well as other varying factors
TEACHING
STRATEGIES
Create an emotionally safe classroom environment
Positive teacher-student relationships
Other strategies.....
http://www.visible-learning.org/hattie-ranking-influences-effect-sizes-learning-achievement/
It's a complicated web of factors that can inhibit learning! The underlying lesson for us is that teachers need to KNOW and understand their STUDENTS!!! We need to adapt the classroom and teaching strategies to foster learning in all students - as best we can.
