Clip to ScrapBook #2

My first year in Title I I ended up with group sizes that large. After year one I put my foot down and started setting group caps. There are always more students who can use more support but if you don't keep groups reasonable you won't help anyone. We were targeted assistance (I teach kindergarten at a different school now) and were expected to serve the bottom 20% so that was the cap I set. For example, if a grade level had 60 students I saw up to 12 students in that grade. There was some push back from colleagues but my administration supported me and we saw remarkable growth. The guidelines I've always heard for RTI groups were up to 1-3 for Tier 3 and 1-6 Tier 2.
