This research-based guide addresses the challenge of implementing differentiated small-group instruction in K–6 classrooms where students' abilities, needs, and interests vary widely. It is packed with ideas about how to structure literacy lessons that incorporate both collaborative and needs-based small-group instruction in order to help all students succeed. The authors explain how to use assessment to group students appropriately and how to develop whole-class instruction that leads to productive work in groups. Each chapter details engaging activities that will improve speaking listening, writing, reading, and technology skills for diverse students, including English language learners. In a large-size format for ease of photocopying, the book includes more than two dozen teaching tools.
