Objective to help student set individual goals for the week ahead
Focus on areas the student is stuck Peer-to-peer coaching Small-group instruction Project-based learning Enable students to pair-up to coach one another
Helps stronger student reinforce concept
A struggling student on one topic is usually a strong student on another
Provides an opportunity for everyone to be a coach, which builds confidence Provide a lecture session only if needed and only to those students who need it
Can be for a remedial group struggling on a below grade level concept
Alternately could be for an advanced group pushing their learning Enable deeper understanding of a concept through projects – but only when entire class is ready
Usually brings in multiple concepts together to blend and use these concepts in real world
