Multilevel Class Management Models

Model 5. From Many to One

Each class begins with an activity for the whole group (e.g., review of a math or grammar rule, introduction of a vocabulary "word of the day", or discussion of current events). This activity takes about one-third of the class time.

The remaining two-thirds of the session is spent on individual or paired study based on individual goals. Some learners may work with paraprofessionals at this time.

Advantages

Disadvantages

The "From Many to One" model:

  • Is highly individualized and offers a measure of privacy, and
  • Requires preparation on only one group activity.

The "From Many to One" model:

  • Requires a good-sized space to minimize noise and distraction,
  • Requires volunteers or aides to provide instruction, and
  • May be too solitary for learners working alone.
