  • 4. Putting together a study guide
    • Teachers should
      • Consider the needs of the students.
      • Think about the difficulty of the subject.
      • The purposes for the students having to learn the material.
    • Scaffolding implies continuous assessment of the student in order to provide adequate support.
  • 5. How does it work
    • Scaffolding can work in a number of ways depending on the instruction being provided.
    • By beginning with a basic knowledge base and then progressively moving ahead ensures that all students have a chance to understand the material (Glaser, 1984)
    • Learning occurs best when learners engage in tasks that are within their Zone of Proximal Development (ZDP)
      • those performed independently by the student
      • those that cannot be performed even with help, and
      • those that fall between the two extremes, tasks that can be performed with help from others.
  • 6. Examples of scaffolding
    • When parents try to teach their child to speak
    • Helping students to sound out the letters in unfamiliar words
    • Supplying a beginning sentence or idea as a start for writing
    • Reading aloud with students as they are reading
  • 7. Pros and Cons of Scaffolding
    • Pros
      • Helps maintain steady student teacher interaction
      • Scaffolding permits students to continuously build upon previously acquired knowledge and skills.
      • Helps learners to move toward new skills, concepts, or levels of understanding
    • Cons
      • Students can receive incorrect information from other students.
      • The teacher needs to make sure they remove themselves from the learning process at the correct time in order for the student to learn independently.
      • Students learn at different speeds
