If You Show Me How, I Can Learn to Do It: The Role of Modeling
Chapter 1 introduces the concept of teacher modeling using analogies such as learning to ski and learning to write. The authors present a rationale for an instructional focus on teacher modeling and evidence that it helps students learn. Through the recount of the experience of a stroke survivor, readers are reminded about the difficulty of reading and the role that a teacher can play. The chapter ends with a discussion of the gradual release of responsibility model and the role of teacher modeling in instruction.
