The Write’n Pause strategy assists students who cannot keep up with directions due to shifting or auditory processing issues. It includes an “agenda” of the next activity or lesson listed on the board and waiting at least 2-3 seconds between directions. Some students need up to 8 seconds or more to “hear” a direction.
Some students in my class never follow directions. They just sit, or don’t put away materials and get what they need next. How can I help these students?
