Alternative Teaching

  • Teachers work with a small group of students for a period of time to provide interventions, modified instruction or enrichment as determined by class/individual student data.


    The main goal is to provide, pre-teaching, re-teaching, and/or accelerated content to students based on data from previous lessons or assessments.

    • Special education and general education teachers collaboratively plan
    • One teacher works with a large group, while the other teacher pulls a small group for a specific instructional purpose
    • Used sparingly to avoid perception of special needs pullout within the classroom
    • Small group instruction is short (no more than 10-15) minutes, so students are given the opportunity to receive large group instruction or to complete assignments.
