Keeping a simple journal of key learning points in a lesson and writing down items to include in the student’s regular practice routine can help jog the memory and can also serve as a valuable record of progress.
Students often only remember a small portion of what the teacher explains in a lesson. This lesson and practice journal will capture the key learning points of each lesson so the student can be reminded of them during their practice sessions.
Teachers and parents should encourage daily use of the lesson and practice journal. If used appropriately, it will provide an excellent record of the student’s progress.
Change the excuse into a reason
Perhaps the most common phrase a teacher will hear throughout their day is “I didn’t have time to practice last week”. The practice journal places focus on the practice routine. Students should never be allowed to use that phrase again. If their practice journal is blank, the only words they should be allowed to use to explain what happened should be “I prioritised all the other things I did last week above my practice time”. This switches an excuse into a reason. With a reason identified, the student, parent and teacher can now put in place an agreed plan to address the issue.
