  12. 12. ConclusionBilingual TheoristsPedagogy EALTeaching Strategies Use of Language
  13. 13. Bruner: Scaffolding refers to the gradual withdrawal ofadult control and support as a function of children’sincreasing mastery of a given task. Vygotsky: The child develops cognition and language as the result of social interaction with more knowledgeable others in activities which have specific goals. Gibbons: Scaffolding is created through Language Support; how the teacher supports the student by careful pitching of comprehensible language. Cummins: research showed that during second language acquisition students do not need to relearn some basic skills and concepts, like forms of communication, critical thinking, or reading and writing (Diaz-Rico, & Weed, 2010).
