Reflection: Classroom Setup Mixed Review - Transformations - Section 2: Play of the Day

 

I usually group students according to the following:

- the front row (6 seats) are reserved for kids who are best served by working with me.  These are generally the middle low kids - not necessarily the lowest kids.

- the most struggling students are seated next to a strong tutor, as they require more than small-group attention, they need 1-on-1 tutoring as the lesson goes by.

- most middle students are seated next to a a strong-middle student, to maximize the quality of their discussion.

I think about the entire seating chart in pairs.

 

This configuration works really well with a mixed review lesson like today's.  I work with the front row while the rest of the class works independently or collaboratively.
