New Goals for Gradual Release of Responsibility

September 20, 2010 47 comments

With your parents, spend some time looking at the Gradual Release of Responsibility diagram outside the classroom:

  • Explain how the diagram works
  • Share your cards with them by taking them off one-by-one and finding somewhere to talk about each one
  • Find out if they think your cards are in the right place on the GRR
  • Discuss how you can work together with your parents to progress
  • Decide on one or two goals for the next couple of weeks
  • Make a comment to tell us your goals and a bit of information about the conversations you had

Remember, make your goals:

Sustainable (you will carry on doing it)

Manageable (it is not too much to take on)

Achievable (you can achieve success with it)

Realistic (it is appropriate for you)

Timely (now is the perfect time to work on this goal)

These pictures show the 6SS students working on a drawing. I gave them a blank sheet of  good quality paper and asked them to draw whatever they wanted to in one hour. I am looking to see:

  • How creative they are
  • How well they can concentrate
  • What is in their minds!

I’ll publish some of their drawings on here later.
