Effective Grouping Strategies for Teaching Reading in the Primary Grades.
Gerdes, Dana Michelle
A national literacy goal is that every child will read by third grade. Teachers must learn appropriate strategies to teach reading so that this goal can be realized; however, for some this goal may be overwhelming. The challenge comes into the reading class when looking at the unique differences and reading levels of the students. Teaching reading in a whole group setting may not always be effective or appropriate given individual differences. The purpose of this thesis is to identify, define, and explore effective grouping strategies for teaching reading in the primary classroom. The goal of reading by third grade can be attained if teachers can meet the unique needs of students by using the best grouping strategies and tools available, utilizing early intervention, and encouraging differentiated learning at all levels.
