The model-lead-test approach is embedded and scripted into every enCORE lesson. This “I do, we do, you do” instructional strategy provides students with frequent opportunities for practicing a skill under the direct lead and supervision of a teacher, and reduces the development of inappropriate skills. Model-lead-test provides explicit and systematic instruction by allowing students to observe and practice the skill repeatedly before being asked to independently complete the task. During modeling, the skill or task is demonstrated correctly. After the skill is explicitly modeled, students are led through the skill or task and given opportunities to practice independently or as a group. Last, students are given an independent opportunity to perform the target skill or task during the testing phase.
