Overview

In her previous books, Literacy Work Stations and Practice with Purpose, Debbie Diller showed teachers how to productively occupy the “rest of the class” while meeting with small groups. Now Debbie turns her attention to the groups themselves and the teacher's role in small-group instruction. Making the Most of Small Groups grapples with difficult questions regarding small-group instruction in elementary classrooms such as:

  • How do I find the time?
  • How can I be more organized?
  • How do I form groups?
  • How can I differentiate to meet the needs of all of my students?

Structured around the five essential reading elements—comprehension, fluency, phonemic awareness, phonics, and vocabulary—the book provides practical tips, sample lessons, lesson plans and templates, suggestions for related literacy work stations, and connections to whole-group instruction. In addition to ideas to use immediately in the classroom, Debbie provides an overview of relevant research and reflection questions for professional conversations.

    Great for Upper Elementary Teachers

    A friend recommended this book to me as our district is requiring using guiding reading during our reading block. Not having the training needed, this book gave me lots of information I had questions about. This is a valuable resource if you are going to teach reading groups. I also recommend her other books on organizing your room and literacy centers.

    Debbie Diller is a Genius

    This book has provided useful ideas that I can use with my students.
    Debbie has worked in classrooms with teachers and brings her wonderful
    ideas to teachers in her books. This book is useful for veteran teachers as well as new teachers just starting out.

    I also suggest her books that help in the actual set up of classrooms.
