Chapter 1: Releasing Responsibility: A Framework for Teaching and Learning

Nancy Frey Solution Tree Press ePub

Moving from a 20th century goal of student compliance to a 21st century goal of student competence requires an instructional model designed to accomplish this. The thinking behind the gradual release of responsibility model is that teachers must plan to move from providing students extensive support to having them rely on peer support to expecting them to function with no support. Or as Duke and Pearson (2002) suggested, teachers have to move from assuming “all the responsibility for performing a task . . . to a situation in which the students assume all of the responsibility” (p. 211). Unfortunately, in too many classrooms, releasing responsibility is unplanned, it happens too suddenly, and it results in misunderstandings and failure. Consider the classroom in which students hear a lecture and are then expected to pass a test. Or the classroom in which students are told to read texts at home and come to class prepared to discuss them. Or the classroom in which students are assigned a problem set twenty minutes after the teacher has explained how to do the problems. In each of these cases, students are expected to perform independently but are not well prepared for the task.

bilingual education, established an Advisory Council on Bilingual Education, and vigorously monitored the development of regulations for the implementation of bilingual education policies. The OCR in the Department of Education became increasingly active in activities related to the compliance of the Lau decision.

The federal judiciary also became involved in bilingual education during the mid-1970s. The Supreme Court, as noted earlier, made a ruling favorable to bilingual education in 1974. Soon thereafter, several lower courts ruled on behalf of bilingual education advocates by mandating the use of native languages in the instruction of limited-Englishproficient children and by prohibiting the use of ESL methods.51

By the latter part of the 1970s, then, the federal role had increased tremendously as indicated by the participation of all three branches of the federal government in the making, implementing, and evaluating of bilingual education policy. It had also become more actively involved in local education by mandating bilingual education throughout the country.
