Questions in Instructional Design: Whole Group
- Can we "level a text" for students to their reading level? Or, does it need to be on grade level? Please explain when teachers need to use grade level text only and when students get to use leveled text.
- Are we introducing vocabulary before the lesson or within the lesson even with ELL students?
- Can we teach a phonics lesson during whole group? (K,1,2)
- How much time do I take to model the tasks for each learning before I start daily rotations?
- How long is whole group on Mondays?
- Is Monday mostly direct instruction?
- When do we deliver assessments?
- When and how should we give the longer formal assessments, which are more formative -- whole group or small group?
- How can I introduce all of the skills listed on the Curriculum Map for one day in 25 minutes?
