I've Got the Power Cape
by Smekens Education
Every new skill starts with the teacher possessing the knowledge-- the power. But through explicit instruction (i.e., I do, you watch and listen) and the gradual release of responsibility, the teacher slowly shares the knowledge and know-how with the students. The shift in power occurs during the We do together and eventually You do, I watch phases. Use this cape to convey where the students are in the process of learning new skills. The silky cape measures 22” in length and includes a Velcro fastener at the neck.
