Reflection: ELL Students Crayfish Vs. Snail - Section 2: Group Reading and Note Taking


When reading articles from the FOSS kit some will struggle if left to do so on their own. When determining student groups for this project, I paid attention to reading level and ability to comprehend. I used this data to form my science groups because of the nature of the complex text students are about to read. I try to keep the groups balanced and also know from behaviors that some students will work more patiently with their peers than others. I made sure to include this when making these particular groups.
