Scaffolding strategies for middle and high school
Scaffolding is the process of adding instructional supports for students to enhance learning and work toward mastery of skills or tasks. Teachers can provide support through scaffolding when introducing a new skill or strategy, as well as when students encounter complex text. This support can be faded or removed as students progress toward mastering these tasks independently.
The Literacy Academy on Demand Course Scaffolding Strategies with Dr. Dianna Townsend provides helpful strategies for scaffolding support to help students access complex texts.
