Complex Instruction and Group Worthy Tasks

Complex Instruction and Group Worthy Tasks on Curiouser and Curiouser

I’ve been struggling with reaching diverse learners in my very heterogeneous math classes.

Simply put, students “don’t fail to participate because they are too shy or don’t want to participate. They don’t participate because other children in the group see them as having nothing to offer…In short, they have low academic status within the group.”

But it’s not just about the behavior. It’s about best practice. I have students with a WIDE range of abilities in the same classroom. Everyone deserves access.
