Reading DCA #2 March 2
What are your thoughts on treating Writing like Reading in that we pull students in small groups based on need? This would let the other students who are more independent move on. One thing that I have done is a rotation where there are students with you in small group, students learning from a video or digital lesson and others working on their compositions or other seat work. Come to CPC with thoughts or concerns.
