Hi,

With this pandemic going on, I've noticed that students keep making the same mistakes they did previous years. Do you think we should correct them all the time, give them extra activities or just mark the mistakes only once?

I've been wondering this as it is supposed that "we learn from mistakes".

Looking forward to reading from you,

Maria :)

I have seen this same phenomena occurring in my classroom. I am sure that the increased stress level for everyone may account for some of these repeated mistakes and I take that into account. I think the philosophy this year has been that we are just trying to survive. I do wonder how this will impact future educational goals though.

Hi! Thanks for replying! I guess that with summer vacation on your door, you will all be more relaxed. Here in Argentina, we will have 15 days for our winter break in July and I am really looking forward to having it! It's been demanding and exhausting, especially when students don't do a thing even if we do our best! Smiles, Maria :)
