Big Blocks Big Blocks is a multilevel, multimethod language arts framework. Multilevel instruction focuses on the multiple learning levels and needs of all students in the class in a single lesson. A multilevel activity is an activity that is so rich, students at different levels have something to learn through the same activity. Unlike single-level activities, multilevel activities are not frustrating for the struggling reader and writer or boring for those who are more advanced. When teachers provide daily, multilevel learning opportunities, more students achieve the “mastery” desired over time. Big Blocks is multilevel because instruction in each block is differentiated to meet the needs of all learners. Big Blocks is not a program that dictates what is to be taught in a specified sequence or manner. The Big-Blocks™ framework differs from Four Blocks in its implementation based on the time devoted to each block and the frequency of each block.
