Professional Development to Practice Step 5: Guided Practice–“We Do” “Guided Practice involves an opportunity for each student to demonstrate his or her grasp of new learning by working through an activity or exercise under the teacher’s direct supervision. The teacher observes students at work to determine the level of mastery and to provide feedback and remediation as needed.” Hattie, J. 2009.
