If you remember back to our last post, we asked the question, “What is the best way to provide school kids with individual attention?”  The answer is to group them by their ability. While there is no policy written in stone, a majority of teachers divide their classrooms up by reading and math skills. The setup is a happy medium between tracking and teaching the same lesson to every child. Most classes have subgroups only for these two core subjects. For the other subjects the students are taught together. Students who were taught in small groups matched to their reading level made literacy gains that were two months higher per year than kids who were taught using a whole class teaching approach. Leave us your comments. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. Let us know what other topics you would like to have discussed. Share this post with your friends. Remember to always praise your child.
