“When scaffolding, teachers typically provide high levels of initial guidance and then systematically reduce support as students respond with greater accuracy.”

Scaffolding is the use of structured supports that allow students to build on successful experiences with content. The supports are gradually reduced as students progress toward a goal.

With the strategic use of scaffolding, teachers can promote success for students at different levels of readiness.
