Question: I work hard to pre-teach and use corrective teaching strategies but find that my students are still working on the skill of staying on task. It becomes challenging when I need to use corrective teaching strategies because the other students can't focus on their independent reading. They are very impatient and need constant new stimulation to keep them engaged in learning rather than arguing or physically fighting.
