Description

Most classroom teachers find themselves working tirelessly to ensure that they are meeting the needs of all their students.  In schools using a ‘workshop model’ structure, this requires teachers to be experts in knowing their students, knowing what they need to teach and bridging the gap by using the most effective instruction possible.

We know that small group instruction is an opportunity to differentiate instruction based on students’ needs. We also know that guided reading is the most commonly used small group practice.

However, it is not the ONLY small group there is!

Knowing your students and being clear on what you need to teach is what should determine which small group practice you use with your students.

Are any of these true for you?

  • Outside of Guided Reading, you’re not sure what other small group practices are effective?
  • You’ve heard about literature circles and/or book clubs, but have never seen them in action (or you’ve had a go at implementing them but you’re looking for more support with making them more effective).
  • You’ve been told that reciprocal teaching is the next step on from guided reading but you’re not sure why?
  • You’re wondering what would make you choose type of small group instruction over the other?

If so, then Small Group Instruction (Diving Deeper) is the next step for you!

In this online PD we will:
