Event Description

Foundational Skills Instruction: Why Differentiated Learning and Small-Group Instruction Are Key to Student Success

Please join us for a roundtable webinar during which we will explore why one size does not fit all when it comes to differentiating foundational skills instruction and mastery learning.

In this panel discussion, leaders in the field will assess the essential elements and key components of small-group reading instruction and mastery learning. They will delve into the benefits of employing differentiated instruction in promoting educational equity and addressing the unique needs of each student in order to accelerate their learning.

Furthermore, the panelists will engage in collegial discussion around the practical implications associated with the implementation of this approach, while also examining the necessary requirements to manage this strategy effectively in the classroom.
