Should We Salvage the Scaffolding Metaphor?.
Stone, C. Addison
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v31 n4 p409-13 Jul-Aug 1998
This response by the original author to six commentaries on his paper concerning the scaffolding metaphor for learning disabilities highlights common themes (such as the basic dynamics of meaningful learning) and revisits arguments for and against the utility of the metaphor. Suggestions for broadening the metaphor to address related issues such as the interpersonal, communicational dynamics in classrooms are offered. (DB)
