All Students And Teachers
Literacy Place follows the Gradual Release of Responsibility optimal learning model. In this model, teachers constantly and slowly release more responsibility for learning to students.
Literacy Place incorporates a range of instructional approaches that are organized within the gradual release of responsibility model. This chart shows that students move through each approach in reading and writing starting with high teacher support and ending with independent work. Working with words and oral language are interwoven into all of the instructional approaches.
