### Scaffolding Instruction Through Questioning

Big Picture of Session

- TEKS Focus: Addition and Subtraction
- Instructional Focus: Scaffolding
- Scaffolding Focus: Effective use of graphic organizers and representational tools to develop, bridge, and build conceptual understanding

According to Lev Vygotsky . . .

“The zone of proximal development is the distance between the actual developmental level as determined by independent problem solving and the level of potential development as determined through problem solving under adult guidance or in collaboration with more capable peers.”

L.S. Vygotsky, (1978)

Scaffolding

Unknown

“Through scaffolding, the teacher was able to build bridges from the unknown and not understood to the known and understood.”

Henderson, Many, Wellborn, and Ward. (2002, Summer). Reading Research and Instruction, 41(4), p. 310.

Known

First Turn/Last Turn

- Read individually. Highlight 2-3 items.
- In turn, share one of your items but do not comment on it.
- Group members comment in round-robin fashion* – about the item (without cross-talk).
- The initial person who named the item then shares his or her thinking about the item and takes the last turn, making the final comments.
- Repeat the pattern around the table.

*Round-robin is a highly structured participation strategy.

Group members speak in turns, moving around the table in one direction.

Video Reflection

What are some examples of videos shown yesterday that use a graphic organizer to enhance understanding?

“Teachers can use questions as a kind of scaffolding to help students reach higher levels of thinking and learning. . . In the asking of questions, teachers are thinking actively and helping students be active thinkers” (Walsh and Sattes, 2005, p 23).

Video Reflection

How do the teacher’s questions help Shania become successful with the problem 15 minus 1?

[Shania Video]

Linking Cubes to Represent Characters

1 gorilla – 1 blue cube

2 elephants – 2 white cubes

3 tigers – 3 orange cubes

4 parrots – 4 red cubes

5 monkeys – 5 brown cubes

One gorilla is out of his cage,

Oh my, what a rage!

Two elephants followed in line,

Parading, strutting, looking fine!

Three tigers let out a roar,

As they join the fun galore.

Four parrots flew the coop,

What a crazy looking group.

Which manipulative is easier to use and to understand the concepts for this activity?

Four parrots hungry for seed

Quickly fly back to feed.

Three tigers smell red meat,

As they swiftly spring to their feet.

Two elephants run for food.

They must eat not to be rude!

One gorilla, sad and blue,

What do you think he should do?

How did we use visuals to move the students from the concrete to the abstract level of learning?

Which term do we use: Carry? Borrow? Regroup? Rename?

- “Carry” and “borrow” are misleading mathematically - They may promote mechanical manipulation of symbols.
- The term “regroup” is appropriate when manipulatives for a quantity are grouped differently.
- The term “rename” is mathematically correct; the quantity is actually given a different name.
- For example, when computing 273-186, 2 hundreds + 7 tens + 3 ones is renamed as 2 hundreds + 6 tens + 13 ones” .

(Ashlock, 2002, p. 63)

Video Reflection

How does the teacher in the video demonstrate how to find the sum of four fives?

[Allen Video]

Reflection on the Second Grade Lesson

Reflection on the First Series of LessonsHow do you scaffold lessons for students to be able to model addition and subtraction?

What tools could help students to better understand addition and subtraction?

How did we scaffold the lessons in the second

and third grade lesson by bridging

from the concrete to the pictorial to the abstract?

Addition and Subtraction Strategies

- Counting On
- Counting Back
- Doubles
- Near Doubles
- Make Ten
- Splitting
- Related Facts
- Compensation

Video Reflection

How is the organizer used to teach the students doubles from the pictorial to the concrete level?

[Zachary Video]

Fill this section on the Reflection sheet.

Doubles and Near Doubles:

Explore thinking strategies like these or realizing that 7 + 8 is the same as 7+7+1 will help students see the meaning of the operations. Such explorations also help teachers learn what students are thinking. NCTM

How can the students use the Make Ten Strategy to solve this problem?

Video Reflection

How does Harrison use his mental figuration of make ten to describe how to solve 8 + 5?

[Harrison Video]

Splitting Strategy

“Splitting strategy is a strategy that children develop almost on their own, as soon as they begin to understand place value. They split the numbers up into friendly pieces, usually into hundreds, tens, and ones.”

Young Mathematicians at Work, pp. 134-135
