Scaffolding language skills in a secondary school.pptx

  1. 1. Scaffolding language skills in a secondary school
  2. 2. Being language educator is never easy since each student has unique background, motivation as well as learns differently. As an example, kinesthetic learners are different to visual learners and drafting good teacher’s plan that tailors everyone’s needs is never easy. However, we can provide appropriate assistance to students so that they may achieve something beyond what they could achieve on their own. This is what scaffolding is all about and in this presentation I will try to outline some useful ideas.
  3. 3. We as teachers should always consider how information is verbally presented or explained to the students in the classroom. Tips and tricks to provide better verbal scaffolds include slowing your speech, enunciating clearly and using ‘read-alouds’ to model correct pronunciation. Verbal Scaffolds
  4. 4. Scaffolding can also be incorporated through the content and materials used in learning and in the environment to support students as they progress. Procedural scaffolds can be created through the use of visual tools or graphic organizers such as mind maps and wall charts to help learners understand complicated text and organize information. Discussion prompts such as sentence frames also provide invaluable support and structure so that second language learners can produce sentences on their own. Procedural Scaffolds
  5. 5.  Modeling and demonstrating language orally or in writing to the learner  Encouraging learners to occasionally use their native language  Activating prior knowledge about a new topic to create a context for the new learning  Incorporating collaborative group or pair work into lessons  Using visuals and graphic organizers such as pictures, models, diagrams, grids, tables and graphs to support understanding  Providing language prompts and frames for speaking and writing 6 teaching strategies that embrace scaffolding in the classroom
  6. 6. Thank you for your time. It is the end of the presentation.
