Reflection: Gradual Release Rock Climbing, Forces in Motion - Section 3: Guided practice


This method of  finding the main idea needs a lot of scaffolding. The first time I do the exercise we all do it together whole group, then the next couple of times with a partner and then the students can do it by themselves. I cannot emphasize enough, that this is a gradual release. I created the graphic organizers for that reason.At first they need the graphic organizer, and then eventually they can do it on their own. They will get better, however, only after repeated practice.
