Scaffolding allows students to perform tasks that would be slightly beyond their ability without that assistance and guidance from the teacher. Rather than simply transmitting knowledge, teachers enter into conversational dialogues with students, helping them construct knowledge and understand and develop their thinking processes on instructional tasks. This book addresses the how-tos of scaffolding students who need support in learning and are at risk for failure, as well as strong students who are working to master difficult materials. In a larger sense, this unique and significant collection speaks to the issue of how best to mobilize school resources for student benefit.
