Student Grouping Options
Appropriate grouping and differentiation does not occur as often as it should unless it is quick and easy to do. These stickers (located at the end of this lesson) make it quick and easy.
Plan a seating chart according to one chart above using students' demographics and the most recent performance data (e.g., place an EL next to a same-language R-FEP for peer support, place a Special Ed. near the front where he can best see and get extra help, etc.).
Changing from Option A to Option B, and vice versa, any time you create a new seating chart will prevent students from associating particular colors or numbers with specific performance or demographics.
Any Time You Are Teaching
You might choose to use data on learning styles, multiple intelligences, etc., or to change students seats for particular activities. You can also adjust the system to allow for different class sizes, give #1 strugglers certain numbers, etc.
