Guided Instruction

Guided instruction is temporary, flexible and responsive. It is where the cognitive load begins to shift from the TEACHER to the STUDENT.

During Guided Instruction, teachers:

  • prompt student thinking
  • use strategic cues to guide student thinking
  • use questioning techniques to guide student thinking

Teacher reverts back to Focused Instruction if direct explanation is still needed.
