Frequently Asked Questions
Will my child feel like he is with the “dumb kids”?
Sometimes groups will be sorted by levels of learning but not always. Students will never be identified as “smarter” than another. Students will recognize we all learn different, we are all good at some things and not so good at others and that is ok!
Is my child always going to be in the same “group”?
Not at all. Many factors are considered before groups are decided. If a group learning experience is best for the lesson, groups may be determined by skill level, interest, or a different need. Groups may also not be the same for different subject areas. Sometimes groups may be together for the day or the group may be together for a few days or weeks. Each lesson and assignment is different, thus making the length of time for groups different.
Will every part of instruction be differentiated?
No. Not every minute of each day nor lesson needs to be differentiated. There will still be large group instructions and lessons.
