MELD – Math, English Language Development Block

PURPOSE OF Math, English Language Development Block – (MELD)

Small group instruction time where classroom teachers and/or interventionist(s) work primarily with those who are challenged with common specific skills (to make more impact) while the other students work at their level (at grade level or advanced) with the supervision of other adults.  This gives the teacher a 30-40 minute “sacred” time frame to deep dive into the needs of students who are challenged by grade level curriculum with resources for extra help so  these students are not pulled during whole group instruction (but during the MELD block instead).  TEACHERS WORK WITH THE MOST CHALLENGED – that is the goal in mind, using all data tools created to help inform that their NEEDS are met, not level, but skills in need.  These groups will be fluid and dynamic.
