Grouping Tools for the Classroom Creating groups for differentiation can be hard or easy, depending on how many students you are working with and how often you want to shuffle your groups. In each group, you may want to allow students to self-select a role with accompanying responsibilities or randomly assign the role. This isn’t a difficult task. Another task that can be more onerous is randomly splitting up your class roster into equal-sized groups. While I usually do this based on seating arrangement (usually, teams of four students per desk group), you can also do it using online programs. Before we explore those, let’s revisit roles and responsibilities students may have.

How to Get Your Mind to Read In one experiment, third graders — some identified by a reading test as good readers, some as poor — were asked to read a passage about soccer. The poor readers who knew a lot about soccer were three times as likely to make accurate inferences about the passage as the good readers who didn’t know much about the game. That implies that students who score well on reading tests are those with broad knowledge; they usually know at least a little about the topics of the passages on the test. One experiment tested 11th graders’ general knowledge with questions from science (“pneumonia affects which part of the body?”), history (“which American president resigned because of the Watergate scandal?”), as well as the arts, civics, geography, athletics and literature.
