|Mini-lessons are short lessons (10-30 minutes) used to teach
important literacy skills to students. The mini-lessons follow a
basic format: anticipatory set, modeling, guided practice,
independent practice, and assessment/closure. Teachers model
a skill, students practice the skill with support, and then practice
the skill independently. To read more about the rationale for
using mini-lessons, see:
