CI Teaching Method
Gradual Release of Responsibility (GRR)
The Interdisciplinary Approach is meant to link different subjects, even if they are taught by different teachers. The topic or unifying theme integrates various elements thereby enabling children to learn in a holistic way.
Teacher-directed learning centers offer students the opportunity to learn in small-group instruction and assessment. Other centers provide students with opportunities to work independently or collaboratively with peers.
Project-based learning involves students in sustained, collaborative investigation of real-world issues. In carrying out these projects, students engage in tasks typically associated with professionals, including reading informational text, conducting surveys, designing models, and communicating the results of the investigation.
