Description

Are you wondering what to do when your students have the same need but don’t fit perfectly into a group because theyre reading at different levels? 

This online course is for you if:

  • you find yourself looking at your data, willing your students to fall perfectly in to five groups with similar needs and a similar reading level but your reality is quite different. 
  • you’re wondering if there are other small group instructional practices for reading that allow more flexibility with grouping. 
  • you’ve heard about strategy groups, but have never seen them in action. 

The course:

In this self-paced online mini-course, Oz Lit Teacher and I: 

  • look at why strategy groups are an effective practice for small group instruction in reading. 
  • discuss the purpose of strategy groups and look at why you would choose to group students based on a strategy. 
  • look at some real formative assessment on a class of students and show you how to use your data to group students based on strategy. 
  • break down the structure of a strategy group lesson and look at the role of the teacher through the lesson. 
  • watch a video of a strategy lesson to show you what it looks like in action.
