Being back in the classroom is interesting. Last week, I knew I needed to implement differentiated appointment calendars to form heterogeneous partners, homogeneous partners, and peer tutors, but I wasn't sure I was up for the challenge of managing behavior and having students keep up with their appointments. So, I used their M.A.P. and SRI data to form the groups, and I wrote their appointments on different pages in a SMART Notebook file.
Now, if I want peer tutors to work together in reading or homogeneous partners to work together in math, I simply include that slide in my lesson. Management problem solved. :)
