today s objective
Today’s Objective
  • Participants will learn how to effectively introduce reading skills during small group instruction using Instructional Routines and aligned Student Center Activities.
  • The goal is to differentiate instruction using free resources.
what is differentiated instruction
What is Differentiated Instruction?
  • Matching instruction to the needs of individual learners.
  • Forming small, flexible teacher-led instructional groups based on student data and observations.
  • Grouping students with similar instructional needs, limiting the size of the group based on the intensity of instruction needed.
how to differentiate instruction
How to Differentiate Instruction
  • The focus and format of reading skills instruction varies with the skill level of the students.
  • How often and how long the teacher meets with each small group varies depending on student needs.
  • Students who are more at risk will need to meet more frequently and for longer periods.
  • The small group targeted skill instruction supplements and reinforces high quality and consistent initial reading instruction during the 90+ reading block.

Handout 6

[ea1]In order to make this task explicit for the students, I need to succinctly explain what they are expected to do. For each part of the task I will use as few words as possible. Teacher language should be concise, specific, and related to the lesson objective.

[ea2] Systematic instruction iscarefully planned and thought out. This allows students to internalize the routine and focus their efforts on practicing the new skill.

[ea3]Because this SCA assumes students have prior knowledge of these affixes it is important to remind the students of their meanings to then apply them in this lesson.

Handout 6, cont.

[ea1]By keeping the same steps for each turn I have reinforced the systematic nature of this lesson

“To be more effective in teaching all students to read, we must find ways to help teachers more powerfully differentiate their instructional support in a way that is guided by accurate information about student needs.”
