Pacing - A teacher decides what component(s) of the lesson is taught whole group (for all students), and what component(s) of the lesson and/or activities will vary for each small group. 

A basic template (samples on this page) can be adapted to plan blocks of time that the whole group will need and how much time a task for each small group will need.

Adjusting pace- When one task takes longer than another, the teacher paces instruction by ensuring a variety of independent tasks that allow the students to work independently while the teacher provides focused instruction to smaller groups (often rotating between groups) with comon needs.

Flexible pacing is evident when teacher-led instruction (and feedback) is alternated with student-led instruction, engagement in the task, and/or offering feedback to peers.
