Chalk Talk: The Importance of Small Group Mathematics Instruction
Teachers that use small group instruction in math are able to be sure the students are getting what they need in terms of understanding key concept, but on their level. It is imperative that educators have the understanding that the classroom of students, more than likely a heterogeneous mixture, are not on the same level of understanding. Once an assessment is given on a particular math concept, the teacher is able to clearly see what level the students are on. Grouping the children in the classroom, according to what they know, is much easier to get the concept across, and prevents the upper-level students from becoming bored with learning about something they already know. Small group math instruction enables the teacher to reach those students who have some difficulty, while challenging the students who are on a higher tier of learning.
