Daily, Weekly, and Long-Term Student Groupings

Employing multiple grouping approaches to meet immediate needs as well as provide stable working teams

Context

Student are grouped in multiple ways over the course of the year. 

  • Long-term groups are formed every 6-8 weeks. These groups stay pretty consistent over that course of time. 
  • Additional groups are created weekly based on data and feedback teachers are receiving. 
  • Sometimes student groups may be created or changed daily if there is a common instructional need to be met and the calendar allows for it. 

Open time on students’ calendars is filled by independent, self-directed work time, where software provides instructional prompts through individual playlists, such as: using a program, reading, writing, or use of the maker space.
