Meeting Students’ Needs Through Scaffolding Grid

To accelerate learning for various learning levels, scaffolds are temporary instructional supports designed to help students successfully access grade-appropriate activities just beyond their current independent ability. This resource from Expeditionary Learning helps ELA teachers use front-end scaffolding (i.e., preparing students to better understand how to access complex text before they read it) and back-end scaffolding (i.e., helping students deepen their understanding after reading a text).
