Really good ideas
Engage-grab the student's attention and get them interested in the topic.
Explore-give students the opportunity to come up with their own explanations and try new things.
Explain-using student work, discuss the key concept of the unit you are working on. Use multiple formats for explaining.
Elaborate-challenging activities that help them with new situations.
Evaluate-give students quality feedback on their work.
The article recommends that all of the pieces of phases be used to increase the effectiveness of the model. This should take multiple lessons and be used in the sequence recommended by the team that created it.
Interesting article with a good place to start back in my own classroom.
