Identifying Instructional Moves during Guided Learning
Frey, Nancy; Fisher, Douglas
Reading Teacher, v64 n2 p84-95 Oct 2010
This study examined teachers' actions during small-group guided instruction as they scaffolded students' understanding. The data suggest that expert teachers use a process that has four components: questions to check for understanding, prompts for cognitive and metacognitive work, cues to alter the learners' attention, and direct explanations. As part of a gradual release of responsibility framework, this system serves as the scaffolds that students need to successfully accomplish tasks alongside the teacher. (Contains 2 figures and 2 tables.)
