In Search of the Architect of Learning: A Commentary on Scaffolding as a Metaphor for Instructional Interactions.
Butler, Deborah L.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v31 n4 p374-85 Jul-Aug 1998
This commentary on C. Addison Stone's paper on the scaffolding metaphor for the learning disabilities field concludes that the scaffolding metaphor is fundamentally flawed. The author proposes an alternative model, Strategic Content Learning, which is seen as more successfully promoting correspondence between instructional activities and the dynamics of teaching and learning.
