5 Academic Intervention Strategies For Struggling K-12 Students

     

    When students struggle to succeed in the classroom, finding the right strategy to bring them up to speed is a challenge. Every student is different, so what works for one may not work for the other.

    However, that doesn't mean you shouldn't have a standard set of academic intervention strategies that identify and set expectations for struggling students. Your school needs to have a plan in place to remediate all students who need help rather than taking a reactive approach to poor test scores.

    Read on to learn five academic intervention strategies for K-12 students.

    1. Identify Struggling Students Sooner

    Teachers are a great resource for identifying students who need remedial help. But you can't rely on teachers alone. Teachers and administrators need the right tools to analyze assessment scores and identify long-term trends in student performance.

    Look for an AI data platform with advanced analyics. You should be able to create actionable insights, identify knowledge gaps, and get automated reporting and alerts.


    2. Set Expectations That The Student Will Learn The Material

    While this is not to say exceptions can never be made, students should be expected to learn what's required in a class. Teachers can help by building up students' confidence that they have the ability to learn what's expected.

    3. Create An Individual Plan For The Student

    It's important to understand that every student will need a different approach to academic intervention. Some examples of intervention strategies for students include:

    • Helping a student organize their notebook
    • Working with a student on time management skills
    • Teaching a student how to consistently submit homework on time
    • Giving students tips on study skills or using weekly agendas
    • Moving a student to a new classroom desk where they'll be able to concentrate better

    4. Assign Targeted Learning Content

    Teachers can help students improve their grades by assigning targeted content that's relevant to the subject matter and easy to understand. If you have a large repository of educational content, you need a way to quickly identify the right material for students.

    An AI data platform that enhances discoverability of your content makes it easier for teachers, and even students, to find content that promotes more effective studying.

    5. Avoid Repetitive Teaching In Curriculum

    If students are learning the same material two times or more in different classes, they have less time to focus on material that hasn't been covered. So, you should avoid repetitive teaching by fine-tuning curriculums.

    The right intelligent data platform not only helps you identify where curriculums overlap, but where there are gaps in curriculums. You're able to make sure all required material is covered without redundancy.

    When designing remedial programs for grade school, middle school, or high school students, keep in mind that the right tools make your efforts more effective.
