Transcript of Grouping Students

This indicator deals with the instructional arrangements of the students during a given lesson. It focuses on how the students will be grouped for the instruction and the activities of the lesson and how they will be held accountable for the work they are expected to complete.

(OCD Foundation, 2009)
-There may be no other instructional strategy that simultaneously achieves such diverse outcomes as cooperative grouping. (Research has given) considerable validation of the use of cooperative learning to achieve diverse outcomes, including achievement, time on task, motivation, transfer of learning, and other benefits.

Group Activity
Create a group activity that will hold students
Objective: By the end of this lesson, teachers will develop one collaborative group activity to hold students accountable, resulting in effective Grouping, as measured by the TAP rubric.

-Effective cooperative learning occurs when students work together to accomplish shared goals and when positive structures are in place to support that process.
Johnson and Johnson and Marzano
- The instructional grouping arrangements (either whole class, small groups, pairs, or individual; heterogeneous or homogeneous ability) adequately enhance student understanding and learning efficiency.
- Most students in groups know their roles, responsibilities, and group expectations.
- Most students participating in groups are held accountable for group work and individual work.
- Instructional group composition is varied (e.g. race, gender, ability, and age) to, most of the time, accomplish the goals of the lesson.

Any examples you would like to share?
There must be a rationale for why students are grouped together. There are a variety of grouping patterns, include:

- By heterogeneous or homogeneous grouping
- By demographic balance
- By interest
- By ability to focus
- By ability to communicate
- By language acquisition levels
- By academic 'level'
Assessing Group work
Final Product
Self Assess
- What outcome do I expect students to accomplish by the end of each group session?
- How will I provide quality feedback on progress? By group? By individual?
- How will I record this information in a grade book and/or student record?
- How will I use this information as a formative assessment?
- Is this work expectation appropriate for a small group? Whole group? Individual?
