(Click above for video - 5.49 MB)

At this point in instruction, the teachers decide to create smaller groups. They could provide different instruction for different types of learners, or both could present the same instruction over the same content in a more intensive manner.

Sequence 4

(Click above for video - 5.06 MB)

The teachers decide to group students for practice or performance activities. Some groups work fairly independently under the supervision of one teacher, while one group receives more direction from the other.

Sequence 5

(Click Above for Video - 5.48 MB)

At this point in instruction, some students are working independently, some are working with a partner, and others are receiving intensive instruction. This is an example of how differentiated and leveled instruction might look.
