GRR (Gradual Release of Responsibility) Lesson Plans & Coaching Opportunities
It's been awesome this week in classrooms to see so many teachers using the GRR framework of I Do-We Do-You Do! Each of you has a unique craft and I am impressed by how you scaffold and allow students opportunities to practice collaboratively, whole class and individually.
Almost 80% of you participated in the July Disciplinary Literacy Institute held at North, where you created two GRR lesson plans, one utilizing a Comprehension Reading strategy, and another incorporating purposeful collaboration. The collection of those lessons is stored on our Bb9 "World Languages District Course Template" page. Hover over the photos below and click on the magnifying glass to expand.
Many sites also use the GRR lesson planning template in conjunction with OTLs and SLOs/Observation Visits. Some of you are also working on these with me during coaching cycles. Please let me know if you would like to plan one together around your work with your SLO and if you'd like to work together in a mini-coaching cycle.
These are great practices and powerful artifacts for Educator Effectiveness.
