Introduction to the Module

The first half of the Instructional Scaffolding webinar describes the necessary paradigm shift for teachers when planning for instruction. The learning process is a combination of: conceptual understanding, computational fluency, factual knowledge and problem solving skills. The focus concept is scaffolding math instruction using specifically designed scaffolds for each class and for specific students so that instruction compensates for the challenges of students’ limited working memory. When setting up instruction teachers should: regularly use explicit methods of instruction, use clear problem solving with carefully orchestrated examples, use concrete object to understand abstract concepts, and use think aloud strategies.

Target Audience: All Grade Levels
