The Metaphor of Scaffolding: Its Utility for the Field of Learning Disabilities.
Stone, C. Addison
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v31 n4 p344-64 Jul-Aug 1998
This critical analysis of the scaffolding metaphor for the field of learning disabilities first reviews the origins and early applications of the metaphor and criticisms of the metaphor raised by others. It proposes an enriched version of the metaphor which emphasizes the communicational dynamics and conceptual reorganization involved in adult-child interactions. Applications of this enriched metaphor are then considered. (DB)
