Flexible Grouping - “Flexible grouping is the purposeful reordering of students into working groups to ensure that all students work with a variety of classmates and in a wide variety of contexts during a relatively short span of classroom time. Flexible grouping enables students to work with peers of both similar and dissimilar readiness levels, interests, and learning preference and allows teacher to “audition” each student in a variety of arrangements…. Additionally, it’s important for students to work as a whole class” (Tomlinson & Strickland, p. 352).
