At Mona Elementary School in Utah, students work through a 2-station rotation. One station is independent work, and the other is small-group targeted instruction with the teacher.
Station Grouping Using Formative Data
Jamie Thomas at Rochester Middle School in New Hampshire, leads small-group instruction as a station. Station groups are formed using formative data from the previous day’s exit ticket, so groups are re-formed each day. In her small group, she re-teaches or extends as needed. Meanwhile, the other two student groups work through an independent station leveraging adaptive math software and at the collaborative station, learners work together to spot errors and correct them in more complex math problems.
