Flexible Grouping and Learning Stations SIA Course

Step 4: Differentiating Flexible Groups

Instruction provided for flexible groups should be differentiated. Select instructional strategies based on learning goals and student needs.

For example, there are three flexible groups working on context clues:

  1. Students struggling with context clues experience lots of teacher modeling of how to visualize what they are reading to assist with context clues.
  2. Students with some understanding of context clues are taught how to substitute a known word for the unknown word to assist with context clues.
  3. Students who are advanced with this skill are taught how to use the sentences or words before and after the unknown words to assist with context clues.
