This is the way I've always done it (bleeder valve or not ... plenty of experience as I went through three cracked slaves):
Unclip slave from bellhousing and let it hang from the hose
Disconnect the master rod from the pedal assembly linkage
Remove the reservoir cap and rubber bladder piece (make sure reservoir is full)
Slowly cycle the slave by hand about ten times making sure everything goes uphill from the slave
Reassemble and you should be good.
