I do, We do, You do

TLAC Focus: I do, We do, You do

  • I do - teacher delivers key information/models/demonstrates
  • We do - teacher asks students to HELP at key points and gradually offers less assistance
  • You do - students practise the work on their own and teacher helps where necessary

How would you achieve this in Google Classroom?
