Description

Combining video analysis with the well-known Gradual Release of Responsibility (GRR) model, this book offers teacher educators a fresh perspective and a new tool for supporting teachers’ learning and reflection. The clearly articulated and useful framework shifts the focus away from children and toward teachers’ thinking about their own teaching practice. Interwoven with practical examples of the framework in use, this book identifies ways that teachers and teacher educators can foster more productive kinds of reflection about video-recorded classroom interactions and support preservice and inservice teachers. Offering key tools such as templates for reflection, video viewing guides, self-analysis checklists, and activities, this book moves the field forward and establishes video reflection and the GRR process as critical tools for teacher reflection, professional development, and effective teaching and learning.

Reviews

"Rarely do readers of educational volumes have an opportunity to explore with authors the developing journeys to understanding how particular forms of reflective processes support teachers in creating ongoing learning opportunities with linguistically, culturally, socially and intellectually diverse learners in classrooms and other educational settings. In this volume, the authors create a dialogic approach to engaging readers, whether beginning or experienced teachers, administrators, or those engaged in professional development processes, in exploring the principles and processes guiding the Gradual Release of Responsibility model (GRR) Model, an approach to developing professional understandings and actions of teachers developed over the past four decades. By focusing on video-based telling cases of the historical and ongoing theoretical and process roots of this model in action, the authors provide readers with opportunities to (re)formulate what Educational Philosophers B.O. Smith and Robert Ennis (1961) framed as new fundamental concepts of education that support the complex and challenging work of teachers with diverse learners in classrooms and other educational settings."

--Judith Green, Professor Emeritus, University of California, Santa Barbara

"The book presents the Gradual Release of Responsibility Model within a pedagogy of video reflection to scaffold preservice and inservice teachers in using video records to deepen reflection on literacy teaching and learning. Written in accessible prose with practical examples and activities and grounded in research, the authors demonstrate how preservice and inservice teachers, teacher educators, and educational leaders can use the GRR Model as a cornerstone in building a reflective community of practice, working toward adaptive expertise in literacy teaching, and attending to the needs of diverse learners."
