There are many ways to group students for instruction. These
groups should change often depending on the needs of your students. For working in
(younger students) or
(older students) work
really well. Pairs of students sign each other's clock/appointment calendar on the same
time. When the teacher says, "Get with your 2:00 appointment," the students check their
clock/calendar and get with the student whose name is written by that time.
Determining how students learn is an important part of DI. More
is available on this website.
This is an excellent resource to help you create lessons of greater
complexity and challenge for your students as you plan for differentiation.
