Reflection: Gradual Release Roll & Add - Section 3: Guided Instruction


Every class (student) is going to grasp concepts and steps in an activity at their own rate so don't rush the release of the activity. I have had classes in the past that picked up steps and concepts very quickly and I have had others that take twice the time anticipated. Monitor what your kids are doing and how they are connecting with the activity/skill and move when you see they are ready. If they get restless and start to misbehave, chances are they are bored and are ready to move on to independent practice. If they are looking to you a lot and watching every move you make, chances are they still need more guided practice.
