Flashcard Content Overview

While every teacher has their own style of running a classroom, there are some tried and true classroom grouping strategies that not only help students learn, but can also help a teacher manage a smooth and well organized learning environment. These flashcards review major group-learning strategies, such as peer teaching and debates, while also helping you define the types of grouping styles, such as heterogeneous groups or homogeneous groups.

Skill-Based Groupings

Differentiate
Teaching in a manner that takes into account the varied levels of intellect, learning styles, and buy-in
Formative Assessments
Continuous, small 'check-ins' that help a teacher determine how the students are learning (e.g. 'exit tickets' or 'red/yellow/green signals')
Homogenous Grouping
Placing students together who have similar skills, can be based on intellect levels, interest levels, similar backgrounds, etc.
Heterogeneous Grouping
Mixing students of different abilities and levels to form a cooperative or learning group
Writer's Workshop
Abbreviated as WWS, this teaching strategy helps differentiate the writing process. Students move at their own pace, practice revision and peer-review, and then practice these skills as a class using mini lessons.
Mini Lesson
A short, direct-instruction lesson that models a particular skill or introduces a specific concept
Structure of the Writer's Workshop
1. Mini Lesson demonstrates skill/concept; 2. Students write independently; 3. Students may or may not peer review and share; 4. Teacher reviews the lesson for closure
Guided Reading
When the instructor closely works with students to carefully read a text and decipher meaning
Dynamic Grouping
Fluid grouping that is determined based on assessments (both formative and summative) throughout the school year
