Customizing Structures 4. Flexible Grouping & Re-Grouping


In this Learning Path you will increase your understanding of the difference between how and why MCL learning communities and Industrial Age schools organize learners/students.  They organize for convenience. We organize for learning.  The different function requires a different structure (flexible grouping and re-grouping) which will be explored in this learning path. As a result of your study, you will reflect on how you, your learning center, and your learning community are doing and plan your next steps related to the elements of Flexible Grouping and Re-Grouping.


Learning Path Outcomes:

Specifically, in the Flexible Grouping and Re-Grouping Learning Path, you will increase your understanding of:

  • the prerequisites to grouping and re-grouping learners;
  • the guidelines and starter steps for grouping and regrouping learners.
