Scaffolding For Success

Good essential questions leverage the power technology brings to the learning environment. Answers to good essential questions cannot be copied and pasted from the Internet.


Scaffolding For Success -

  • Basic Approach-This approach focuses on the information:

  • How to

    • find it,

    • evaluate it,

    • analyze it,

    • synthesize it,

    • organize it and

    • use it effectively

  • to persuade a reader of the validity of the assertion.

  • Students also must think about the opposing arguments and how best to counter them. Teachers must monitor the research process and help students evaluate and synthesize varying points of view within the larger yea/nay categories.

Scaffolding For Success - More Challenging Approach

Assign a topic.  Ask students to develop questions about the topic from a template provided and then to choose one question to pursue. OR

Allow students to generate a topic, brainstorm possible questions, and select one question about the topic to pursue. OR  

Use the Essential Questions of the course or of the unit as guiding questions for the research.

Scaffolding For Success - More Challenging Approach

Method:  Students must first do some general reading about a topic. Then, students brainstorm possible directions (with aid of a question template) for research.  The question drives the topics and the research.  After researching, students construct a thesis, one that drives the paper or project presentation.    

What students learn: Students learn to focus a topic by asking questions, to keep options open during the research process, separate necessary from unnecessary information, as well as evaluating, analyzing.
