Reflection: Student Grouping Differentiated Poetry Experience, Day 1 - Section 1: Activator


Ahead of time, I determine the student groups, so that as they arrive I seat students in groups of four based on reading level: advanced, middle and low. However, I do not identify each group in that way. Instead, I use a color-coding system: purple worksheets for the advanced readers, yellow for the middle level and blue for the low level.
