Scaffolding: Helping all students reach academic excellence
from By Erick Herrmann
Education can be seen as the act of helping students learn new content, concepts and skills over time by teaching the steps necessary to master the skills being taught. Teachers need to provide scaffolding for students to reach each skill or concept and achieve at higher levels. In the field of education, scaffolding refers to the support systems and instructional techniques teachers employ to help take students from where they are to higher levels of academic achievement.
