Standards based instruction
CCSS: major shifts
Objectives: measurable and specific- SWBAT
Standards come from national professional organizations
Multidisciplinary approach which involves creating a variety of DAP activities and experiences around a central idea or theme

3- ring circus
cooperative learning
direct instruction
learning logs
find opportunities to involve families. Use volunteer sign up sheets, family nights, guest speakers/readers

8 basic steps for small group instruction
strategies: how will you teach?
Assessment: how will you group students together?
modification/differentiation: who needs this and how?
activity description: What will they be doing
purpose: why are they doing the task
materials/resources: what will they need to use
Extension: how can you build on learning
reflection: what went well? what did not? how can you improve?

Include novelty. Use different strategies in order to accommodate students learning styles.
