Reflection: Gradual Release Seriously?: Working Together to Locate Non-Literal Language in Text - Section 4: Demonstrate Skills

 

You'll see throughout this series of idiom lessons that I'm incorporate the Gradual Release of Responsibility model!  To start, the students read along with me as I guide them through identifying and understanding the non-literal language in the text.  Today, students are now ready to take more of the responsibilty, but aren't yet ready to be completely independent, so they're working with partners today.  Coming up this week though, students will be tasked with working with non-literal language on their own, so you can see the release of responsibiity happen throughout the week. I use this model of instruction delivery quite often, and I think it serves my students well!
