Paramount’s instructional cycle allows teachers and students to focus on one learning target at a time. The cycle begins with a 15-minute teacher-led mini-lesson followed by a data-driven gradual release process where the teacher monitors student mastery on guided practice problems. Once the teacher has released the students to independence, they have 30-40 minutes to practice the skill while the teacher provides real-time feedback in Google Classroom. The cycle ends with a 10-minute standards-based exit ticket that aligns with Indiana’s state assessment rigor.
