scaffolding
Scaffolding
  • Adding supports to aid students in mastering new skills
  • Systematically build information beginning with what they already know
  • Scaffolding can be applied

to any academic task

scaffolding content
Scaffolding-Content
  • Content Scaffolding
    • Accessing prior knowledge
    • Using familiar examples
    • Familiarity increases retention!
  • In my classroom,
    • Used when teaching paragraphing skills
    • Started with a paragraph about their pet
    • Then, two paragraph reading responses
    • Now, five paragraph essay on in-class reading
scaffolding material
Scaffolding-Material
  • Material Scaffolding
    • Written prompts
      • Cue sheets
      • Guided examples
  • In my classroom,
    • Graphic Organizers
      • 1st complete

textbook adaptations
Textbook Adaptations
  • Because we have so little instructional time this year, I like to spend class time doing activities or having discussions
    • Much reading is done for homework or in study hall
    • Poor reading skills lead to poor comprehension
  • Solution: Textbook Accommodations!
    • Can be used with students of all ability levels
textbook adaptations1
Textbook Adaptations
  • Study Guides
    • Work best for higher-functioning readers
    • Outline form
    • Provides headings and vocabulary from the book to guide note-taking
    • Highlights important topics

and information

Textbook Adaptations
  • Graphic Organizers
    • Works well for middle to low performing readers, but are good for all!
    • Like the study guide, but more concise and visually stimulating
    • Great for making connections and comparisons
textbook adaptations3
Textbook Adaptations
  • Audio Tapes/CD’s
    • Great for students with greater needs
      • Reading
      • Memory
      • Attention

    • Requires scaffolding to implement
