The Gradual Increase of Responsibility Model: Coaching for Teacher Change
Collet, Vicki S.
Literacy Research and Instruction, v51 n1 p27-47 2012
This study examines the gradual increase of responsibility (GIR) model for teacher coaching (Collet, 2008), an adaptation of Pearson and Gallagher's (1983) Gradual Release of Responsibility model. In GIR, instructional coaches model, make recommendations, ask probing questions, affirm teachers' appropriate decisions, and praise in order to provide decreasing scaffolding, which moves teachers toward interdependence and collaboration. (Contains 7 figures.)
