Tip of the Week

April 12, 2021

Fostering academic independence: I do, We do, You do

Help your child become more independent with their schoolwork by employing an “I do, We do, You do” approach. 

  • I do: Model the approach or strategy for your child. Explain the strategy you’re using, demonstrate using it successfully, and think aloud to make the strategy explicit.
  • We do: Practice the strategy together while offering feedback and support.
  • You do: Remove yourself from the equation and let your child practice the skill on their own.

Students learn sooner from concrete modeling. Time spent up-front modeling an approach or behavior will reap rewards down the road as your child gains independence.
