Time to Reflect

“Guided Instruction, although critical, is not sufficient enough
to ensure lasting instruction. Students also need to experience
expert modeling, engage in productive tasks with their peers,
and produce individual work. Guided instruction is part of a
bigger instructional picture in which students consolidate their
learning.”
