    What is this strategy about?

    When organising pupils into groups within their usual class for specific activities or topics, pupils with similar levels of current ability should be grouped together.

    What is grouping in the classroom?
    Students are sometimes divided into smaller groups for some portion of the time when they are in the classroom to conduct certain activities. This can allow them to share ideas, listen to one another and work as a team to become more actively engaged in the learning process.

    Why is it important to group students by ability?
    Grouping students by ability allows teachers to tailor the pace of instruction for each group. This means that students that understand the concept quicker can move onto more advanced stages and more time and guidance can be given to the students who may take longer to grasp the concept.
