This article was written by Jason, a high school junior high school student. The term repiteaching was created by Mister Teacher. I think the perspective that Jason takes here is interesting.
Repiteaching is the act of reteaching something already taught according to Mister Teacher. It is annoying to students and teachers alike.
I admit I need some repiteaching in English but it is annoying in Math. It’s boring after the teacher explains it about three times. Some people in my Honors class don’t pay attention until the review before the weekly test. That takes about half the class time and the class is usually shortened due to the weekly pep rallies in football season so we have little time due to the pep rally and repiteaching..
Repiteaching is also annoying for something taught in an earlier year or something taught earlier in the school year. I know my teacher is mad when she has to reteach what an isosceles triangle is after she taught it before a four day weekend.
Repiteaching is also time consuming. This is how a typical 64 minute class went. Current events/teacher venting about the other unhonors classes:10min. Check homework and repiteach:20min. Teach new lesson:20min. Work on assingment and homework:14min.
Repiteaching is very frequent during February when all the teachers are shoving review work down our throats before the ILEAP in March.
So what are your thoughts? Tell your thoughts while I try to remember what an isocoles triangle is.
