“Scaffolding” describes all the temporary supports we provide our students so they can tackle steeper learning curves. It is essential to effective instruction and yet often overlooked in our lesson plans. Examples of scaffolding include activating student knowledge, chunking learning into smaller bits, using multiple modalities, modeling, and backward design of our lessons. These workshop materials help answer questions list: Why is scaffolding essential to effective instruction? What does it look like? How can we use it more?
