"It's the quality of teaching that has the greatest impact on student learning" – Robert Marzano
In this course, participants will learn, practice, and plan for the use of instructional strategies that have been shown to be the most impactful for all students.
"Scaffolding is not just a static 'thing' that is provided to students to support their learning, but a complex process of planning and interaction that provides the intellectual 'push' that helps students work at the outer limits of the zone of proximal development."
– Hammond & Gibbons
In this course, participants will identify the critical components and explore successful strategies for scaffolded instruction.
