Small Group Instruction; Exemplary Practices


Guided Reading and Literature Circles

Instructing children in small groups enables us to observe them in authentic ways.

Our children need exemplary practices that will lead them to independence. Explore the ways in which exemplary teachers manage these best practices in their classrooms.
