The 21st Century Gradual Release of Responsibility

  1. Engage Students with questions, predictions, and ensuring relevance and urgency
  2. Allow students to explore the concept, skill, or strategy
  3. Have students explain the critical information needed for the concept, skill, or strategy. Fill in the blanks if students don't have the critical information.
  4. Allow students time for guided and/or independent practice.
  5. Have students elaborate on the concept, skill, or strategy. What do they understand better as a result of the practice? How will this knowledge or skill be used in other situations? Ask inferential questions that require support for their thinking.
  6. Ask students to reflect or revise understandings.
  • What new knowledge or skill have you learned? (Reflection)
  • What have you added to your understanding? (Revise)
  • How has your understanding changed? (Revise)
  • What are you thinking now? (Revise)
This can be an exit ticket, quiz, or discussion. This is FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT if you use the information to plan what you will do next time with the students.
