Scaffolding Experiences in Reading Instruction.
Ediger, Marlow
This paper discusses the importance of scaffolding and other techniques in teaching reading. It details numerous ways to employ scaffolding, such as the following: a teacher may read aloud new passages while students follow along; a teacher may print new words on the chalkboard before students read a passage which uses the words; and teachers may suggest students use the public library. The paper emphasizes that scaffolding may also be accomplished through Learning Styles Theory, which focuses on: classroom situations, such as temperature and seating; emotional elements such as conformity; sociological factors; scientific intelligences; and artistic intelligences. The article also discusses constructivism in reading instruction--in constructivism, the student is heavily involved in making curricular decisions. (PM)
