Back to Better Learning Through Structured Teaching: A Framework for the Gradual Release of Responsibility, 2nd Edition
This revised and updated edition of an ASCD best-seller digs deeper into how teachers can equip students with what they need to develop content understanding and be self-directed learners. Get new tips and tools to support your implementation of a tried-and-true classroom practice that includes
- Focused instruction that establishes a purpose for learning and models how students should work.
- Guided instruction that uses prompts, cues, and questions to lead students to new skills and understanding.
- Collaborative learning that allows students to practice these skills and deepen understanding through exploration, problem solving, and working with peers.
- Independent learning that requires students to use the skills and knowledge they've acquired to create authentic outcomes and ask new questions.
The authors help you bring this approach to life in your classroom with real-life scenarios, checklists for planning, ideas for differentiation, and examples that align with the Common Core standards.
