I am not naive. I know that making mistakes is a normal part of learning, and I know that sometimes there is benefit in teaching from mistakes. But a mistake made once is not the issue here. Skill and drill worksheets provide the unpleasant opportunity for repetition of a mistake. In a classroom setting, a student may have the sheet "completed" before the teacher can make it back around the room. The mistake gets practiced several times and probably will not be identified until the next day. Doing a worksheet at home may or may not be successful. The parent must supervise every moment the child is working on the worksheet if mistakes are to get caught before practiced. No looking at the TV, no stepping into the kitchen to stir the soup, nothing! We have all heard the saying "Practice makes perfect." Unfortunately, it is not true. Practice makes permanent. Only perfect practice makes perfect. We do not want permanent mistakes! And as I have said before, there are many interesting, even exciting ways to teach and learn. Why use skill and drill worksheets when it is known how harmful they can be?

During my teaching career, an often stated statistic was that for information to be considered learned it would need to be repeated or practiced 4 to 10 times. More recently, that number of needed repetitions has increased to anywhere from 20 to 50 times. Currently, the word repetition is being used in a guarded fashion. But the main point is that it does take many repetitions for information to be transferred into long-term memory and to be considered learned.
