Reflection: Gradual Release That was a Breeze!: Working with Idioms - Section 5: Review


This last lesson in the series here on idioms shows the final portion of the gradual release of responsibility model I've used here.  Today, students worked completely on their own!  They took their selected idiom, showed a literal translation, the non-literal translation, and then used it appropriately in a sentence!  Using the gradual release model has brought my kids to the independence they have in this lesson, and that's wonderful!  

  Reflection: They did it-all on their own!
