In another article, I will be explaining how to fix practiced mistakes; but I assure you that it is not quick and it is not easy. And it certainly does not involve another worksheet! A much better option is for the mistake to never get practiced. Skill and drill worksheets can only avoid this trouble if someone is standing over the student with rapt attention on every answer to be written. As soon as a mistake is made, the reason for the mistake must be identified, and the correct method needs to be practiced right then and there several times. And then again in about 10 minutes, and then checked again before class is over.
Another problem with almost all worksheets is that they do not prevent incorrect answers. Self-checking worksheets just let the student know they did something wrong--after the fact. I am a firm believer in the concept that, if at all possible, learning should be structured in small chunks in such a way that there is very little possibility for error. Worksheets often allow for mistakes to be made and then to be repeated many times. A mistake that gets practiced is extremely difficult to correct. This especially happens when worksheets are used as time fillers or baby sitters and the work is not really being supervised.
