I always backtrack on my lesson planning and elongate the instruction. For example, I would look at the foundational skills necessary prior to teaching a concept. I would do a formative assessment to see which of these foundational skills were missing in the student population and then begin structuring my lesson from there. This usually adds an additional class period to instructing in a concept, but produces a greater level of mastery at the end.
