Larkin, Martha J.
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v34 n1 p30-34 Sep-Oct 2001
This article presents the techniques of a special education teacher who practiced effective scaffolded instruction. A case study illustrates use of scaffolded instruction to break the failure cycle and such techniques as establishing a shared goal, actively diagnosing the learner's understandings and needs, providing tailored assistance, giving feedback, controlling for frustration and risk, and assisting generalization to other contexts.
