Share on email

Empower Consultants use a visual presentation along with handouts to build teacher capacity
for incorporating small group instruction into the Secondary classroom. Teachers are taught
how to identify students for small group instruction and group them appropriately, develop
content for this instruction time, manage their time, best practice instructional activities for the
small group setting, and how to informally assess or progress monitor students so that small
groups are a fluid part of classroom instruction. Sample schedules are provided as well as a
sample lesson planner and form to progress monitor students based on the standards or skills
being taught. All information provided on small group instruction at the Secondary level is
research based and includes the idea of Gradual Release of Responsibility as an instructional
pedagogy.
Participants Learn or Receive:
● How to structure a small group using Gradual Release of Responsibility

● Different ways to group students to optimize learning
● Student engagement strategies
● How to Progress Monitor students growth
● A sample small group organizer
