The Use of Scaffolds for Teaching Higher-Level Cognitive Strategies.
Rosenshine, Barak; Meister, Carla
Educational Leadership, v49 n7 p26-33 Apr 1992
Although scaffolds (forms of support to help students bridge the gap between their current abilities and intended goals) can be applied to teaching all skills, they are almost indispensable for teaching higher-level cognitive strategies. Especially helpful scaffolds for clarifying thoughts, summarizing, and solving mathematical problems are models, concrete prompts, think-alouds, simplified problems, hints, and suggestions.
