About this Grantee
Ms. Bauernfeind and her colleagues study ways to address the range of learning levels in small reading groups. The study group members read several books on differentiated reading instruction, view accompanying videos, and practice techniques for differentiating reading lessons. Based on assessment of student needs, the study group develops and refines several model lessons attempting to meet the need of every learner. One of the authors of the books, Beverly Tyner, visits the school to observe teachers as they teach small group reading lessons and provides feedback.
