Developing Academic Literacy through a Gradual Release Model: Examining the Role of Productive Group Work

Developing Academic Literacy through a Gradual Release Model: Examining the Role of Productive Group Work

This interactive workshop presents a framework for quality instruction across the content areas - the Gradual Release of Responsibility. Participants will learn how to create lessons that flow from introducing new concepts and skills, to building and applying the new learning, to proficiency and independence. They will explore the critical elements of this framework - teacher modeling, guided instruction, productive group work and independent practice. Then we will take an in-depth look at productive group work through observation and discussion of classroom video clips, as well as participation in a variety of interactive instructional routines.


Participants will learn how they can:

  • Structure and organize their classrooms for effective group work

  • Plan lessons that require students to engage with each other in critical thinking

  • Plan lessons that integrate the four domains of language – listening, speaking, reading and writing.
