Reynolds, Dan; Daniel, Shannon – Reading Research Quarterly, 2018
Although much research exists on scaffolding in reading instruction, confusion about the construct persists. In this commentary inspired by a recent article in "Reading Research Quarterly," we argue for the importance of contingency--that is, responsiveness to student thinking--in reading comprehension scaffolding. We begin by defining…
