Many times as teachers we want to get to the student practice too quickly. We know the powerful influence a teacher can be on his or her students. Make a GREAT impact with the Gradual Release Model in your instruction this month.
- "I Do It" - teachers are deliberate in demonstrating exactly how to complete a task, skill or strategy
- "We Do It" - challenge and support the students, clarifying understanding, ask questions that take then to the next level
- "Ya'll Do It"- one more step that deepens understanding- before you do it, have students pair, and practice with a partner
- "You Do It"- independent practice
