If it's what I think it is, Fisher and Frey developed it. It's instructional model of "I do" (modeling) "we do" (class participation) "you do" (independent or pair work.) If you go to their website (http://fisherandfrey.com/resources/) and click on "Gradual Release of Responsibility" There is a powerpoint with some good info.

It's also referred to as a scaffolded model of teaching which is related to Vygotsky's work on the zone of proximal development. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework that is both standards-based (you can align to WIDA and Common Core) and encourages scaffolding to meet the needs of all learners. You can learn more about UDL here: http://www.cast.org/udl/
