GOOD NEW Lynne & Diane

The Your Turn lesson is a solid plan for instruction. Following the gradual release of responsibility model put forth by Lev Vygotsky, the sequence of instruction moves methodically and meaningfully from teacher control to student independence. (Lynne Dorfman)

In a recent post on her blog, Lynne Dorfman, coauthor of Mentor Texts (with Rose Cappelli), Grammar Matters (with Diane Dougherty), talks about how the “I Do, We Do, You Do” structure of Your Turn lessons supports students on their road to independence. Lynne and Diane regularly share bonus Your Turn lessons that you can put to use in your classroom right away:

Your Turn Lesson: The Colon

Your Turn Lesson: Using Transitions

Be sure to check their website regularly for new lessons, anecdotes from the classroom, and other tips and ideas for your teaching practice.
