Small Group Instruction (Re-teach) - a strategy listed on the district PST (Problem Solving Team, RtI) plan form for deficit skills in read, writing and/or math.
Flexible grouping - When teacher notices which students require more practcie or reinforcement of a skill/concept, the teacher responds by forming targeted instructional groups to re-teach or provide extended time for student practice. The teacher uses appropriate samples of quizzes, daily work, entry/exit cards, or any other formative assessment practices to clearly identify students for the re-teaching/reinformcement activity.
Materials for re-teaching may be selected by the teacher and/or supplied by students. The content and process must be engaging to make best use of the re-teaching time. See mini-lesson/mini-workshop strategies.
As for students who do not require re-teaching, see management strategies such as anchor actvities, orbitals, extensions, etc. so that all students in the classroom are actively engaged in respectful tasks for their learning. Moving students ahead by readineallows the teacher the time (s)he needs to re-teach students who require more support.
