Questions to Consider

  • How do Ms. DeBose and her co-teacher Ms. Aldebot use data to inform their planning?
  • How are stations effective in meeting the needs of diverse learners?
  • Ms. DeBose uses her co-teacher and paraprofessionals to lead the stations. How could you plan a lesson like this one if you don't have extra teachers in your classroom?
