Tiering and Scaffolding: Two Strategies for Providing Access to Important Mathematics
Williams, Lori
Teaching Children Mathematics, v14 n6 p324-330 Feb 2008
Tiering and scaffolding are two differentiation strategies that teachers use to support access to a high-quality mathematics curriculum for all students. This article provides examples demonstrating a thinking process for planning tiered activities that focus on important mathematical understandings. Also described are possible scaffolds that can be used to support students as they work independently at an appropriate level of challenge. (Contains 6 figures.)
