Build a scalable, sustainable tutoring culture

How can educators in the Opportunity Culture Multi-Classroom Leader role or other teacher-leaders create a small-group tutoring culture on their teaching teams and in their schools?

This series explains the Opportunity Culture SIMPLE Tutoring Design method, showing how to create small-group instruction that reaches all students, provided by all available adults within the school.

Intentionally plan and internalize lessons and assignments—in advance, by adopting and adapting curricula

Monitor and adjust—lesson content and student groups, using student learning data

Prioritize “small for all”—using smaller groups for all students

Lengthen time in smaller groups—minimize time teaching whole class at once

Engage students—interpersonally to focus and motivate
