Looking For A Small Group Reading Practice Based On Skill Rather Than Level?

Why This Course?

This online course is for you if:

  • you're looking for a way of teaching students in small groups that's based on skills and needs rather than reading 'levels'.
  • you’re searching for a flexible grouping strategy that enables more effective differentiation in your reading classroom. 
  • you’ve heard about strategy groups, but aren't quite sure how they work. 

In this one-hour mini-course I team up with fellow literacy consultant Mardi Gorman to explore the small group instructional practice of Strategy Groups in the reading classroom. We tell you why strategy groups are an effective option for small group instruction and explain how to implement these in your classroom.  We break down a strategy groups lesson and show you a video of this practice in action.

Course feedback


“Easy to navigate and user friendly; good length; quality explanation and instruction; relevant examples; value for money.”


"I really loved the references to the evidence based best practices, sharing the history of the practices and then the really practical way how we can take the information straight back into our classrooms. It was so relevant to what I am wanting to implement and improve on with my own teaching." 


"The course was well structured and covered the content is small snippets. It was great to see the examples for each section."
